Whenever a patient needs urgent help, it will take approximately 15 minutes for the ambulance to reach the site and sent patients to the ED of hospital for further rescue in about 30 minutes. Time, is no wonder the most vital factor to save lives.
The newest release iData P1, has been applied to the Medical First-aid System in Huzhou city, Zhejiang Province. It’s mainly used for the vehicle-mounted registration system. How does it work? Let’s find out more.
Get registered before rescue
Generally, First-aid rescue and inward treatment are independent system. The first-aid doctors would handover the patient’s situation to the doctors of Emergency Department by written reports.
That is to say, the patient has to go through a complex routine including triage, registration, forms filling, and patient’s situation handover on their arrival of hospital. This traditional first-aid mode takes about 2-3 minutes.
But if this is an urgent case, or patients without any accompany, or many patients arrived needs urgent rescue at the same time, that means more process are involving, the longer waiting time that will be and it could be quite dangerous for desperate patients.
These 2-3 minutes or more are critical in life saving. It’s very important for both patients or medics. How to optimize the hospitalized management, speed up the handover, and reduce patients’ waiting time are a must-solved problem for first-aid medics.

All patients can get immediate treatment soon as they arrive hospital.
