Using Technology to Improve Emergency Response

Emergency diseases such as heart attack, stroke and cardiac arrest, account for millions of incidences annually in the U.S. These incidences are extremely time-sensitive and dependent on bystander response and care. Using digital strategies such as virtual and augmented reality, mobile apps and drones, can improve bystander response, training and outcomes. This presentation will explore these topics along with examples of how they are used and demonstrations of some of the various technologies.
