Pulsara appApps that help responders communicate with in this episode of the Disaster Podcast. Hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Sam Bradley are joined by Jim Logan and Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group in this special interview episode of the podcast.  We interview Dr. James T Woodson, a board certified Emergency Physician and the CEO and Founder of Pulsara.

Pulsara is a novel mobile app that keeps responders and hospital staffs connected throughout specific emergencies like heart attack, strokes, and others on the horizon. The thing that makes these emergencies similar is that they are all time-sensitive. By closely coordinating the staff response from the street paramedics through the entire hospital team, the providers can improve patient outcomes in ways that only advanced technology tools allow.

Future Pulsara Expansion Planned

The Disaster Podcast team asks about the potential to expand the app to cover other types of emergencies. In other time-sensitive situations, like active shooter attacks, the Pulsara app might be used to inform teams on the scene and in the hospital of the status of victims on the scene and inbound.

James tells us about the potential of the app to be expanded in many ways. There are plans to integrate many other types of emergencies in the future including things like code sepsis and more. The Disaster Podcast team is looking forward to the opportunity to follow this app as it continues to be developed in the future for other applications in healthcare.
