Linking EMS Data With Hospitals to Improve Care
Health Transformer Jonathon Feit on the development of software solutions for the emergency medical field
“At it’s basic level, when there’s a fire, a shooting, a major storm, if somebody literally has fallen and can’t get up for whatever reason, our guys go to work,” said Jonathon Feit, CEO & Co-founder, Beyond Lucid Technologies. “And it’s been a remarkable.”
Feit was speaking with Unity Stoakes, president of StartUp Health, at the Health 2.0 Fall Conference in Santa Clara, CA. He talked about the extraordinary progress Beyond Lucid Technologies is making in connecting ambulances with hospitals and his current work improving post-crash intelligence.
“Basically, anything that happens outside of the institution of the hospital and is not specifically done under the heading of nursing falls to our guys,” said Feit. “They are the first line of defense in many cases and, more and more, they are the repeated line of health.”
Startups like Beyond Lucid Technologies are helping people in extraordinary situations and bringing new innovations to transportation — an industry that is just being impacted by new technologies. StartUp Health is proud to be working with entrepreneurs like Feit, who is successfully achieving the access to care moonshot and making a positive impact on people’s lives.
“The five W’s. What was the incident, what went wrong, who are you, where do you need to go, what’s wrong with you, what do you need to have done, and so on. How were you treated and then where are you going to end up getting taken,” said Feit. “We collect all that information and we hand that information off [to the hospitals]”
In this episode of StartUp Health NOW, Feit discusses how his company is connecting ambulances with hospitals to better improve patient care upon arrival, and in the future, connecting vehicles with emergency responders directly to ambulances following a crash.
“At its heart, I suppose, it’s a [EHR] document,” said Feit. ”A digital document of who, what, where, when, why, and how.”
