Paramedics and healthcare organizations face challenges with communicating the availability of beds during mass casualty emergencies. This can include contacting hospitals quickly to determine bed availability at nearby hospitals and ensuring bed availability counts remain accurate throughout emergencies. This maximizes efficiency and allows paramedics to make important decisions on the fly.
A digital solution can help paramedics and doctors make these informed choices whilst keeping information secure.
SimplyCast presents the idea of the Hospital Bed Availability solution, a personalized communication system that makes use of emergency engagement automation to help paramedics and other emergency healthcare organizations in managing their response to mass casualty and other types of major emergencies.
Creating Hospital Bed Availability
SimplyCast anticipated the need for a digital solution that can minimize time spent determining hospital bed availability and communicating mass casualties to hospitals quickly.
This solution consists of three main parts, explained below.
Emergency Plans- Step 1
A digital emergency event response plan can be launched to allow the quick assessment of bed availability. These emergency event plans can be pre-created with emergency communication templates that allow hospitals or other important stakeholders to be made aware of a mass casualty situation as soon as emergency services know about it.
Live Survey – Step 2
Once an emergency plan is initiated bed availability surveys can be sent to the appropriate staff at nearby hospitals using emails, SMS text messages, and phone calls.
Updating responses- Step 3
After a hospital indicates its bed availability, the beds they have can fill up. When this occurs, they can respond to the surveys sent in emails and SMS text messages again with a new response, allowing them to update their hospital bed count.
