Clarity Soares High as Care Flight Australia Successfully Completes Emergency Patient Transport Monitoring Pilot 01 Sep


Care Flight Australia, and Clarity Medical are pleased to announce the successful completion of a joint proof of concept pilot which demonstrated significant new and improved functionality using smaller, lighter weight, and cost saving equipment during emergency patient transports by Care Flight. While Care Flight Australia has long provided outstanding aeromedical services, several opportunities for innovation and improvement were identified, which prompted the pilot led by Chief Innovation Officer Alan Garner, MD. Some of the opportunities with pilot outcomes included:

  1. 1. Simplified data download and analyses of transport session (currently a manual process). Pilot outcome- Done, with multiple data file formats.
  2. 2. Display and document patient health data in a format that meets national compliance requirements (currently a manual process). Pilot outcome- Done.
  3. 3. Provide timely remote viewing options of the transport session (currently none). Pilot outcome- Done, with multiple local and remote viewing options.
  4. 4. Provide remote monitoring capabilities of multiple monitors/teams (currently none)- Done, including map-view of care teams.
  5. 5. Identify smaller, lighter weight, less expensive monitoring equipment- Done, Recobro pack weight 2.2 kgs lighter, is significantly smaller, and saves over US $20,000 per unit. The smaller pack may allow a team member to only carry one bag instead of two.

Disruptive Change - “The Recobro package represents true disruptive change to the way monitoring can be used in prehospital and retrieval medicine, as it creates functionalities that do not currently exist,” noted Dr. Garner. Examples cited were in-flight audible pre-configured alarm profiles (via headset), rapid access to data trends, improved screen viewing in direct sunlight, and BLE, Wi-Fi, and internet viewing configuration options. “These are just a few examples of Clarity’s ability to quickly and capably respond to our clinical feedback”, summarized Dr. Garner. “From a practical standpoint, the main benefits include improved workflows using lighter and smaller equipment, which can be critical when seconds count. We look forward to continuing to partner with Clarity Medical in these and other future endeavours.”


Dr Alan Garner remarked while the app testing phase "The latest upgrades to MyTelePatient are excellent. The data displayed via the app is also excellent as is the trend screen and pdf of the trends that can be produced directly on the connected phone."

"Being able to then mirror the screen onto additional devices is something that we will use in our operations to provide a second screen within the vehicle - probably Helmet HUD or a tablet." Dr. Alan exclaimed "One thing I have already started to look at for the future is head up display of the vital signs installed into our helmets or attached to safety glasses. Once the device is linked to a smartphone you simply need to mirror the screen. Because MyTelePatient displays on a black screen, no modification to the display is necessary to project the data onto a HUD."

Close Collaboration - Throughout the pilot, Care Flight, and Clarity Medical collaborated closely as desired enhancements and workflow modifications were both identified and implemented. “Care Flight’s team has provided excellent critical feedback,” stated by S.P. Rangi, Clarity’s CEO. “While our Recobro monitor is considered world-class, Care Flight’s technical and clinical evaluation in the field challenged Clarity to make further improvements, and we listened.”

Upon completion of the joint pilot, Care Flight concluded that using Clarity’s Recobro Vigile and My-telepatient app further with Infiniwell's Sentio integrations met all the above opportunities and more. My-telepatient app provides near real-time data from multiple devices, including alarms, waveforms, trends, and a map-view of the devices which comes with Infiniwell Sentio integration furthermore allowing remote clinical oversight and case review by receiving hospitals. All this was made possible as Clarity developed a simplified way to export patient data trends in multiple file formats, all while more efficiently meeting national charting requirements.
