Kettering Adventist Health Network is implementing an advanced EMS-to-hospital, real-time notification system to exchange vital patient information more quickly. It is partnering with ESO to use ESO Health Data Exchange (HDE) and TrackEMS to improve closed loop communication between hospitals and EMS agencies. The network is providing this technology to area EMS.

ESO HDE is a bidirectional data exchange platform that allows EMS and hospitals to share patient data electronically. The platform translates the information EMS and the hospital needs automatically from any prehospital patient electronic record system to any hospital electronic medical record system.
