Twiage was launched in New Hampshire last month with the Salem Fire Department and Holy Family Hospitals in Haverhill and Methuen. “Salem joins 16 hospitals and 70 fire departments and paramedic companies that have started using Twiage since it launched in November 2015. Other users include Methuen and Georgetown fire departments, along with Patriot Ambulance and Trinity EMS.”
The benefits, including a faster turnaround time for ambulances because of the immediate digital information transfer, quickly became apparent.
“You can organize yourself, send all of that information off and then go back to what you’re doing for the patient,” Salem firefighter Jeff Quesnell added.
“While it can generally take up to 15 or 20 minutes for paramedics to admit a patient, Twiage has helped cut that time down to around five minutes at Holy Family,” said Brenden Hayden of Steward Health Care System.
By using Twiage, Salem physicians and first responders can begin communicating immediately. In addition, the app’s photo and video capabilities help paint an accurate picture of the situation.
