Pulsara ONE, FREE Out-of-Hospital Communications between EMS and the ED

Pulsara’s easy-to-adopt communication platform connects EMS to the hospital with a tap, leaving behind archaic technologies that slow critical care coordination. Our platform seamlessly coordinates communication between the field (EMTs and paramedics) and between hospital staff (RNs, MDs, Techs, etc.) to improve the treatment times and outcomes for critical care patients. Pulsara’s feature-rich mobile platform uses video chat, audio clips, instant messages, images, data, and benchmarks to help teams treat their patients faster.
