OUR CURRENT FOCUS
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).
The path to
progress is clear
American Heart Association research suggests that significant improvements in cardiac arrest outcomes will require effective quality improvement strategies and interventions fueled by data collection, analysis, and feedback.4
Interruptions in chest compressions. Time until care. Medication administration. Many factors can affect Code Blue outcomes, and tracking all of those factors is essential.
Reviewing cardiac arrest cases at least quarterly may increase a hospital’s odds of being in a higher survival category by six times.**,2
Comprehensive support for hospital emergency care
EXPERIENCE A NEW LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE
Don’t wait for the next cart check to know your team is fully prepared. EMMA technology gives you 24/7 confidence that every cart is code-ready.
TAKE A NEW LEVEL OF CONTROL
When a Code Blue is called, clinical teams have seconds to save a life. With EMMA’s intuitive and assistive technology, nothing slows them down.
DISCOVER A NEW LEVEL OF INSIGHT
Your hospital needs more than data to enhance your Code Blue operations. EMMA reports reveal the care-enhancing insights in every emergency outcome.
Secure one-stop resourcing
Store all critical supplies and equipment in one mobile unit — including controlled substances.
Smart inventory monitoring
Save time, reduce errors, and avoid delays with digital resupply and reconciliation alerts.
Track team performance, streamline handoffs, and mitigate liability with detailed event reports.
Every system component is as mobile, agile, and responsive as your code teams.
A breakthrough Code Blue innovation
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.
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.
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
EMMA will soon begin beta testing with select hospitals and will be commercially available in the second half of 2021.
