A summary from the case study:
After a University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital study found most severe trauma patients weren’t taken to the optimal hospital for treatment, the Birmingham Regional Emergency Medical Services System (BREMSS) took action to improve the situation. Working with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Forté Incorporated, BREMSS created a solution that provides first responders with real-time reports of hospital resources and availability. The LifeTrac solution uses Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 on the server side and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition on workstations in the hospitals.
Previously only 40 percent of severe trauma patients were taken to an emergency room appropriate to their injuries. Now 98 percent are correctly routed, helping to reduce trauma fatalities by 12 percent. More than 28,000 critical trauma and stroke patients have benefited from the system.
