In many regions in Canada, paramedics are required to stay with their patients while they wait to be admitted For care because of the funding model. This overloads EMS, leading to “red alerts” (no ambulances available) and increases the costs of EMS. Information and communication technologies can help hospitals triage patients remotely and electronically track patients after delivery to ER. This will free up paramedics, drive efficiency and improve the ability to research patient outomcomes.
