Direct and immediate access to emergency medicine physicians and resources within a province-wide network

Building upon the technologies and applications developed for the Remote Community Services Telecentre (RCST) project, the Integrated Emergency Medicine Network (IEMN) seeks to develop, implement and test a multi-tier emergency service to serve as the basis of a province-wide emergency medicine network. The IEMN will provide the following emergency response capacities within Newfoundland and Labrador (Canada). It gives rural and community health care services direct and immediate access to emergency medicine physicians and resources within a province-wide network (with real-time video consultation and medical data transfer facilities). The project allows continuous communications and patient data transfer between emergency response staff and the emergency facility during an emergency situation or patient transfer between health care sites (road or air-based). It also creates a mobile emergency response facility that can quickly be deployed to a disaster location to extend the facilities and capabilities of the IEMN to the emergency response personnel.
