Buffalo hospital to launch new communication tech for first responders, physicians

Catholic Health's Mercy Hospital of Buffalo (N.Y.) will launch a new technology aimed at improving communication between physicians and first responders, WIVB reported Sept. 26. 

The technology, dubbed Pulsara, will allow first responders to send live video and information to clinicians from tablets and smartphones. 

"Time is of the essence for those patients so the faster we can communicate with the specialists to get them into the cardiac catheterization lab or into the lab for our stroke patients the better the outcome is going to be, and that's why Catholic Health has put Pulsara in place to improve our patient outcomes," said Emily James, the system manager of emergency and neuroscience services of Catholic Health.

Catholic Health aims to roll out the new technology at its other hospitals.
