In emergency situations, when patients are being transferred to the hospital, every step requires precise decision making and timing. Traditionally, magnetic status boards have been used to communicate patient status. This, however, only made information accessible to a few staff members and required constant updating. Winmate's rugged tablet PC eliminates the need for these boards, enabling reliable and streamlined communication between the main control room and medical staff.
The integrated GPS allows efficient tracking and dispatching of ambulances, as well as real-time communication and data transfer between drivers and Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs), improving ambulance operational efficiencies and patient safety. The detailed route information also allows the driver to focus on the road instead of administrative or manual tasks.
Winmate's rugged tablet is an all-in-one device, which means the same device may be used to facilitate communications between the ambulance driver, EMD, and designated hospital. The Intel Atom-powered rugged tablet can be securely mounted inside an ambulance with a customized vehicle dock, and swiftly dismounted upon arrival at the hospital. This allows for seamless transfer of patient information, making the transition period quicker and smoother.
