Aim of STEMIcathAID Mobile App
Incorporating images, videos, illustrations, and live GPS tracking of the EMS, the design will be subdivided into three main sections:
- EKG upload by outside facility or EMS
- Assessment of Cardiogenic Shock
- STEMI patient transfer pathway
When a medical provider, in the field, other hospital, or outpatient office, suspects STEMI, the provider uploads the EKG by taking a picture of it with their phone. Once the EKG is uploaded, the on-call attending at the Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) receives a notification from the application. If the attending believes the patient is experiencing a real STEMI, the pathway is activated. Upon activation, the approximately 10-12 people involved in taking care of the patient are notified so they can begin preparations. Adhering to HIPAA compliance, all users log into the encrypted application and begin to collaborate such aspects as patient vitals, shock information, and emergency vehicle current location and estimated arrival time to the MSH.
Through the optimized communication and collaboration of multiple key players in the STEMI pathway, these time-critical, vulnerable patients can begin treatment promptly. Please see below wireframes of the STEMIcathAID application’s key features.
