Abstract : The overarching goal of this application has been to develop and test the efficacy of a comprehensive, inter-facility transport system that maximizes clinical decision support (CDS) opportunities available to the transport team. This system embodies both the visual and auditory interface available through telemedical infrastructure combined with a real-time, hand held, electronic medical record (EMR) compatible and interactive clinical decision support (CDS) tool. To complete this goal, we have successfully engaged our existing ground and air critical care transport (REACH Air Medical, Inc) infrastructure as well as our Offsite Care critical care telemedicine platform and Children's Hospital Information Technology specialists. Key consultants have included CAPT. Jon Woods, MD. And Comm. Emory Frye MD, US Navy Search and Rescue personnel from San Diego, emotive, Inc., specialty software technologists, and Vidyo, Inc., HIPPA compliant video interface technology. By combining this array of resources, we have created and implemented a more efficient strategy of communication with prehospital and transport personnel. The ultimate goal is to provided more exact and timely interventions minimize transport time to our receiving facility and improve the morbidity and mortality of our transported critically ill pediatric patients. Importantly, this system has the capacity to be developed further to enable more interactive clinical decision support strategies, interface with voice activated charting systems, such as the Dept. of Defense Starix system, and can be ported to other transport teams, both civilian and military.
