Here's the stat: 19 million ambulance rides to EDs each year = 60 ambulances every second. Yet across the country, EMTs and EDs must still rely on delayed and low-quality radio-transmissions to relay urgent messages. For the 1.5 million Americans who will suffer a stroke or heart attack this year, every second counts.
Meet Twiage: An advanced platform that uses best-in-class security technology to enable timely, rich patient handoffs at the most crucial moments. Twiage on a smartphone or Google Glass allows paramedics to immediately alert doctors about a sick patient and share critical data including EKGs, allowing hospitals to mobilize resources even before the patient arrives.
Twiage may be young, but we're rapidly growing. No more than a year old, Twiage is already live at the 5th busiest ED in MA, where "The quality of information coming from ambulances now is second to none." We need YOUR help to bring Twiage across the country to save precious minutes when seconds matter.
