* Directory of all United States interfacility EMS transport agencies.* Ability to take notes with each transfer project to share amongst team members and print out as a PDF for medical records. For example, team members could note that you are already on a waitlist for a given hospital, minimizing repeat calls etc.* The bed status of every receiving hospital in America. This is an approximate probability that a hospital will have a bed, an EMS agency can do a transfer, or a nursing home can take a patient. This will be updated in REAL-TIME by hospital operations managers, transfer nurses, dispatchers and so on.* Receiving hospitals and EMS agencies can update their probability of yes or no instantly on the fly from the app with just a swipe right swipe left type functionality, thereby minimizing the onslaught of calls for transfer.* Phone Notifications when a hospital changes its status from red to yellow / green.* Facility status of multiple useful categories such as peds, adult, intensive care, med-surg, paramedic, critical-care, air-medical etc.
The current state for many of us having to call at times 50 or more hospitals just to be told no and the brutal reality of receiving facilities having to say no over and over, is an unacceptable but unavoidable waste of time. The NTR app hopes to mitigate this, even if just a little. Our goal is a small win for frontline personnel. With the coming iterations, we hope to minimize this waste of precious time by at least providing a list of hospitals by distance and soon, showing the probability of a yes or no in the realms of receiving facilities, interfacility transport and skilled nursing facilities.
