Abstract

Due to the growing specialties, evolving technologies, and disease complexities, quality care is now contingent upon the synthesis of expertise and seamless coordination of multiple, oftentimes distributed, individuals. EMS exemplify the aforementioned depiction, as it involves crew members serving multiple functions separately (e.g., managing patients and driving ambulances) as well as technology enabling the transmission of information between crews in the field and ED clinicians to foster patient management and preparation for incoming patient admissions.
