EMS providers and Phoebe Putney memorial hospital can work better together to save lives thanks to Phoebe Community Visions and the Phoebe Foundation.
EMS in 5 area counties receive new defibrillators that can message Phoebe instantly.
The old machines weren't communicating with the hospital at all.
As a cardiac patient is being transported doctors now have the capability to see the EKG information on their cell phones or Ipads in seconds.
Dr. James Sirleaf said we can make a decision and have people ready have the cardiologist ready and have them well aware well in advance what a patient is having before the patient even gets to the emergency."
