Technology helping to save lives

Cutting edge technology is today helping ambulance crews in Suffolk to save lives.

Potentially vital clinical information about patients can be sent to hospital A&E departments using new electronic patient care reporting (ePCR) and data management software installed on ambulances.

Patient details are recorded using touch-screen technology, clearer and more accurate than written records. East of England Ambulance Service paramedic Adrian Wyatt-Goody said: “We can record far more information than we could on paper and, in some cases, it could save lives.”

Paramedics and technicians in the area have successfully piloted the revolutionary software introduced by Computer Services Corporation (CSC) in patnership with Medusa Medical Technologies.
