Integration provides faster, more effective response to individuals in need of emergency care at Brigham and Women’s Hospital

OPEN Incorporated, makers of the SafetyPAD® suite of technology products for Emergency Medical Services, announced that Brigham and Women’s Hospital implemented its automated Web Services application programming interface (API) to receive pre-hospital patient data from Boston Emergency Medical Services.

The technology ensures that hospital staff receive critical information documented in SafetyPAD pre-hospital reports by first responders for patients transported to their hospital. 

“Using this technology, we built a tool that integrates with our existing clinical systems and provides our care team with fast, electronic access to vital pre-hospital patient care information,” said Adam Landman, MD, MS, MIS, Director of Clinical Informatics at the Department of Emergency Medicine for Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is the second healthcare institution in the Boston area to implement the SafetyPAD API, the first being Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The technology uses secure, encrypted communication protocols to protect confidentiality and employs familiar industry standards so that medical centers can easily create their own interface. Information obtained and entered into the SafetyPAD platform by Paramedics and EMTs is available to authorized hospital personnel to view all of the treatments, patient history, medications and other critical data that helps ensure a continuum of care.

“We’ve placed a great deal of emphasis on ensuring our electronic patient care reporting platform can be of value to everyone involved in the care of an individual who dials 9-1-1,” said Scott Streicher, Director of Operations for OPEN, Inc. “We’ve worked closely with hospitals to develop our API and provide seamless access to EMS reports in their existing systems. It’s our responsibility as the technology leader in this industry to make such investments in our system, and we’re committed to doing that.”
