Salamander Technologies and Versus Technology Inc have integrated their technologies to create a data collection-and-transfer process that can gather patient information at the site of an incident and push it to clinicians prior to hospital arrival. The solution gives hospitals complete situational awareness from the scene of a mass casualty incident through patient admittance and discharge.

This integration combines Salamander’s electronic tagging and tracking capabilities with Versus’ real-time locating system (RTLS). The Salamander solution allows emergency responders to quickly and accurately register and tag patients on scene. Triage, treatment and transport data is captured and managed in the disaster zone and then sent electronically to the Versus system. The Versus RTLS provides precise patient location information down to an individual chair-level, as well as identify any clinician or equipment that comes into contact with that patient.
