Meet EMMA

The first and only Emergency Care System

Introducing Nuvara’s fully integrated medication, equipment, and information management solution for Code Blue events.

OUR CURRENT FOCUS

Helping hospitals deliver better Code Blue outcomes

Despite decades of clinical and technological innovation across the hospital, many facilities still struggle with inconsistency, inefficiency, and safety risks in one critical area: the treatment of in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA). At Nuvara, we’ve made it our mission to make this challenge history.

A breakthrough Code Blue innovation

Emergency medical care deserves the same remarkable level of innovation that medication management innovators have brought to the rest of the hospital.

The Nuvara team is proud and excited to make that effort, and to deliver the first truly comprehensive solution for managing code blue medications, equipment, and information. 

In 2021, Nuvara and EMMA will have a transformative impact on the care hospitals provide to patients experiencing cardiac arrest.”

FAQs

How is EMMA different from current hospital medication management systems?

EMMA is a purpose-built Emergency Care System (ECS). It is the first and only technology designed to enable fully integrated management of Code Blue medications, equipment, and information. For hospital users, EMMA will bring the quality, safety, and efficiency of medication management to key gaps in the medication chain of custody that currently affect many facilities’ emergency medical resources.

Why do hospitals need a new technology solution for Code Blue events?

Code Blue outcomes of IHCA remain poor and highly variable across U.S. hospitals. Despite the technological advances that have benefited many areas of hospital care, these innovations have had relatively limited impact on several key areas of the care of IHCA.

Here’s why hospitals and their IHCA patients have an urgent need for a solution like EMMA:

Clinical integration: While some of these clinical integration solutions have been partially adapted for Code Blue events, most medical emergency management procedures are still manual, reactive, and analog.

Resource management: Manual process and pen-and-paper checklists are still the standard way most hospitals manage their Code Blue medication, equipment, and information. This status quo creates major inefficiencies for clinical staff, significant medical risks for patients, and serious liability exposure for hospitals.

Data capture and documentation: Due to the highly reactive, manual way in which Code Blue events are managed, they generate little objective data that hospitals can use to guide process improvements. Most hospital teams still lack optimized tools that can make consistent, clean data capture feasible during complex Code Blue events.

What technologies are included in the EMMA system?

Hardware: EMMA resuscitation cart with integrated, tablet-based digital management tool and specially designed companion transfer cart

Software: EMMA Code Blue Manager for real-time event facilitation and data capture, and EMMA Inventory Manager for real-time digital resource monitoring

Services: The EMMA Experts, a dedicated consultative support team who provides customers with end-to-end support for system implementation, team training, workflow optimization, and data analysis

When will the EMMA system be available for hospitals?

EMMA will soon begin beta testing with select hospitals and will be commercially available in the second half of 2021.
