Aim of STEMIcathAID Mobile App

STEMI patient recognition, response, and record-keeping system designed to improve outcomes through adherence the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline STEMI guidelines.

Early restoration of blood flow to occluded coronary vessels has been shown to significantly improve outcomes for high-risk STEMI patients. STEMIcathAID aims to improve these clinical outcomes by optimizing their treatment following many of the recommendations of the AHA by reducing the time to STEMI recognition, lead acquisition, STEMI identification, notification of the catheterization lab, and reperfusion.

There are multiple personnel and steps involved in caring for these high-risk patients. STEMIcathAID takes an algorithmic approach which will enhance the coordination and communication tasks essential to rapid assessment and easy transfer of STEMI patients from the field or outside facility. It will also provide protocols for the EMS or outside hospital provider to identify patients in cardiogenic shock even before their arrival in the catheterization lab. The application will integrate live GPS tracking of the patients alongside the time the alarm was raised prompting the sense of urgency in transferring the patient.

STEMIcathAID at a Glance:

  • Fast STEMI diagnosis.
  • Effective inter-team communication.
  • Optimized door-to-balloon time.
  • Automated Capturing of AHA Mission: Lifeline STEMI Metrics Reported to US World News.

Catch STEMI Early

Provider from an affiliated hospital suspects STEMI and logs into STEMIcathAID.

An EKG of the suspected STEMI is uploaded and sent to Mount Sinai Hospital to be reviewed by the on-call attending.

The patient information is entered into the secure, password-protected application.

Alert the Response Team

MSH attending reviews and recognizes STEMI, allowing the team to prepare to receive the patient.

Simultaneously, EMS is notified and assigned to transport the patient to Mount Sinai Hospital.

The EMS vehicle location and estimated arrival is trackable to coordinate and prepare for transfer.

Communicate and Share Valuable Information

Communicate quickly between key persons to receive important information.

Add and view shock information to help assess the patient’s condition along with any supplementary details in the chat.

Manage multiple, simultaneous STEMI alerts, track AHA
Mission: Lifeline STEMI metrics, participate in discussion groups, track medications, and more.
