1: Very Good Innovation
This is very interesting. As the inventor making possible the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) I was asked to look into some of these methods and have over the last few years. I just returned from East Midlands in the UK where they are saving $11 million annually using Decision Support Software (DSS). This is classically the way risk is lowered in such a program. It references over one million words of clinically referenced data and does this in a few minutes. I would suggest this is far less risky when doing assessments. We are combining this concept with EMS telemedicine. And, we have a new technology design guide to aid in configuring such a program with these technologies. It's focus is Community Paramedicine.
