Pulsara app now available statewide
Little Rock, Ark. – Beginning October 1, the Pulsara mobile app will be accessible to all ambulance services, acute care, sub-acute care, long-term acute care, nursing homes, behavioral health hospitals, and other affiliated healthcare facilities in Arkansas through funding by the Arkansas Department of Health. The on-demand and real-time HIPAA-compliant platform allows providers anywhere in the state to coordinate patient care easily using any smart device, desktop, laptop, or browser.
The app is a healthcare communications and patient logistics platform that assists healthcare providers in supporting any patient condition, including time-sensitive emergencies such as heart attacks, cardiac arrests, strokes, traumas, sepsis, behavioral health, and other conditions as needed. The sooner patients are treated for time-sensitive conditions such as stroke and heart attack, the better the outcomes will be. This is critical to decreasing mortality and morbidity and for improving the lives of Arkansans and their families.
"Arkansas is the first state in the country to make the full functionality of this platform available to all EMS agencies, hospitals, affiliated healthcare facilities, public health, public safety, and emergency management," said Bala Simon, MD, DrPH. “This will help our healthcare providers improve communication to improve patient care and outcomes.”
In addition, Pulsara provides the opportunity to assist with all hazards communication for events such as natural disasters, mass casualty incidents, large-scale public events, medical surge load balancing, and bed/services availability.
