ThedaCare's new heart attack app

Posted at 7:19 PM, Mar 15, 2016
A new app could save a life. It's sponsored by ThedaCare and is designed to improve communication between EMTs and doctors that are waiting for heart attack victims to arrive at the hospital.
 
"It's incredibly helpful for us to kind of talk about the patient and communicate about what therapies we're going to deliver and when, and we're talking about a patient that hasn't even gotten to a hospital yet," said Brian Guttormsen, Director of the Chest Pain Center at Appleton Medical Center.
 
The app will be available for all smartphones.
