On Thursday, June 26, 2014, there was a broadcast on Czech Television, which complimented our data linkage project for the City Brno that helps rescue workers with the targeted delivery of patients to hospitals. As a result, there will rarely be a situation in which paramedics don’t have an appropriate drop-off location for a new patient.
This data link replaces the need for emergency service personnel to have to make lengthy phone calls to find the right drop-off location for a patient. Instead all of the communication is done electronically with the receiving medical facility. The system makes possible a flawless, standardized and direct means of communication between ambulances and receiving hospitals.
PLAY the Czech TV (ČT1) interview on the DATA LINK system.
The interview was aired on June 26, 2014 on the ČT1 show “Regional Events” (Události v regionech).
The interview was conducted with the Head Physician Martin Doleček, who described how the system worked and their contributions to its design. There was strong support for the ability of similar systems to be installed in other locations.
