EMS scans the patient’s driver’s license, and the check-in process is already in motion.
Backline allows Emergency Medical Responders to obtain a patient’s medication history on the scene simply by scanning their driver’s license to quickly aid clinical decision making on the scene. Critical patient medication and treatment information can be securely shared with the receiving facility even before the patient arrives.
The receiving facility can then use that data to:
Pre-register a patient for treatment
Alert specialty teams as needed
Streamline the patient arrival process
Once the barcode on the back of a patient's driver’s license is scanned with a mobile device camera, Backline can provide a patient medication list within seconds to the clinician and/or medical team.
Note: If there is no license or state ID to scan, the patient demographics can be entered manually and still produce a medication list.
Using Backline for EMS provides:
Accurate patient medication
data at the point of care
Fewer delays in
better patient outcomes
