BOZEMAN, Mont., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Please join us in congratulating the recipient of the 2018 Connected

World Awards winner, Central Iowa EMS Directors' Association (CIEMSD).

Each year, the Connected World Awards recognizes a successful company within a vertical market for progress in the use of emerging technology. Companies considered for the award are proven innovators who push the boundaries, all with the help of new technology. Being able to calculate a solid return on investment of the technology was a key factor in naming CIEMSD as a winning groundbreaker.

The CIEMSD is composed of EMS Directors and agency representatives from central Iowa. The Association meets every other month to share ideas, unite as a single voice, and make decisions on issues affecting our agencies and communities. There are 9 counties in the association, which include: Boone, Dallas, Jasper, Madison, Marion, Marshall, Polk, Story, and Warren.

"We are proud to partner with our hospital systems to improve communication and patient treatment in a timely and more efficient manner. The real winner is the patient. We have seen case after case where a patient receives time sensitive care rapidly because of improved communications through Pulsara," said David Edgar, CIEMSD Pulsara implementation chair.

Looking for a better way for healthcare teams to communicate during time sensitive emergencies, the Central Iowa EMS group found a solution with the mobile platform, Pulsara. The HIPAA compliant platform enables team communication among patient caregivers during any time sensitive emergency, from prehospital to intra-facility personnel as well as interfacility teams if a transfer if required. Improved communication among the healthcare teams has led to huge efficiencies in patient care and coordination.

The implementation of Pulsara included all of the hospital systems in the metro region of Des Moines, along with nearly 30 different EMS services. Central Iowa's commitment to improving patient care through better regional communication has saved thousands of dollars for both hospital and EMS systems, and the CIEMSD has seen significant savings in time and resources.

By using technology to redesign their processes, CIEMSD was able to harness data to create positive improvements in speed and key performance indicators. This has allowed them to better manage process variability and unpredictability, with the ultimate winners being the patients who receive emergency care in the Des Moines area.
