LAKEVILLE, MINN. [June 17, 2019] - ImageTrend, Inc. congratulates two of its state clients on recent awards at the NASEMSO (National Association of State EMS Officials) 2019 Annual Meeting abstract competition. A total of 16 abstracts were submitted for the competition, with five receiving awards from the judges. The State of Nebraska received 2nd place while the State of New Jersey received honorable mention. Two members of ImageTrend’s Clinical & Research Services team were cited as co-authors: Epidemiologist Morgan K. Anderson and Clinical Specialist Douglas Butler, Jr.
The Nebraska abstract titled “Refusals of Care for EMS Injury-related Incidents in Nebraska: Characteristics and Correlates” considered data for patients that refused either care and/or transportation by emergency medical services when there was a suspected injury. Results found there were decreased odds of refusing care for incidents occurring in wilderness/rural areas, individuals ≥ 46 years old, if the suspected injury was located in the pelvic region, if injury occurred during January/February, and was between 6:00am and 11:59am.
The New Jersey abstract titled “Pre-hospital Refusal of Treatment or Transport: Characteristics for New Jersey Naloxone Administration Incidents” examined data related to patients that had received naloxone, but also refused additional care and/or transportation by emergency medical services. Results found there were increased odds of EMS refusals for incidents occurring in large fringe metropolitan areas (suburbs) and small metropolitan areas, patients between the ages of 26-45, and patients in counties that are less affluent (poverty rate of 35.5% or more).
“We are proud to be part of collaborative efforts such as this and are happy to have been a part of something that benefits the industry. It is great to see the research recognized,” stated Anderson.
ImageTrend encourages research as a way to make good use of data that are collected in patient care and observations of populations. The Clinical & Research Services team includes specialized ImageTrend staff who are able to help clients test hypotheses or develop better methods for improvement of patient care and outcomes.
LAKEVILLE, MINN. [April 20, 2021] - ImageTrend, Inc. introduces a new barcode scanning and parsing feature within ImageTrend Elite™ to streamline the data sharing capabilities with hospital systems. The power of this technology embedded directly within Elite and paired with Health Information Hub™ (HIH) ensures timely and accurate data exchange between hospitals, building the bridge for matching hospital records and receiving outcome data.
Using the device’s native camera, this feature allows users to scan various types of codes including barcodes and 2D QR codes with no additional equipment. Then, that data is automatically parsed into existing data elements or fields that can be mapped to other system’s data formats. The scanned in data points are immediately available to be printed within a PDF or sent to the ImageTrend Hospital Hub™ or HIE, which can connect to your hospital system.
“We developed this feature to cater to the data nuances of the medical industry and to connect systems that haven’t been compatible in the past,” commented Nick Spring, Product Manager for Elite. “Scanning a medical record number off of a hospital face sheet or patient band has never been easier.”
There’s historically been a high risk of inaccuracy when typing patient’s medical record numbers out by hand, but the advanced ability of this feature to consume various barcode types with different data formats saves time for both EMS and hospital personnel and reduces data errors for patient care.
For any questions, or more information regarding the barcode scanning and parsing feature within Elite or the data sharing capabilities of HIH, email email@example.com.
