TRH to be 1st in KY to implement TWIAGE System

Campbellsville, KY - Taylor Regional Hospital will introduce TWIAGE System, a cloud-based platform for prehospital notification of impending ambulance arrival, across its network beginning June 29, 2022.

The secure tool streamlines and shares patient information, including EKG transmissions, photographs and video feeds with Emergency Room physicians to provide a complete picture of all incoming ambulances on one central platform - all before the patient arrives at the hospital.

TWIAGE allows first responders and physicians to accelerate life-saving critical care and better allocate hospital resources to improve patient experiences and outcomes.

"This advanced and secure technology puts telemedicine at the fingertips of emergency first responders and physicians to accelerate life-saving patient care. EMS providers in Taylor, Marion, Adair and Green Counties can seamlessly relay real time patient information directly from our EMS partners to our Emergency Department at Taylor Regional Hospital. TWIAGE will assist our Medical Center to more quickly manage resources for patients who are experiencing stroke, heart attack or trauma. TWIAGE will provide real-time, on the scene communication so that hospital care can start even sooner. Real time speed and information saves lives when responding to emergencies. Our additional cost and investment in TWIAGE is important to me and the excellent staff at Taylor Regional Hospital. We want the very best Emergency care for this great community and the entire region." stated Joseph G. Hugar President and CEO of Taylor Regional Hospital.

The HIPAA-compliant, secure TWIAGE platform can be used on any mobile device by first responders. Taylor Regional Hospital employees and community-based personnel have been trained on the platform.

Renee Taylor, EMS Director, stated, "I feel that TWIAGE will assist in expediting information to the hospital. By standardizing the process, there will be little room for error and there will be documented patient care before we even arrive to the ER. By using this app, we can keep vital patient information off the radio. Standardizing the process will be the big change; everyone calls in report differently, with TWIAGE, it will all be called in the same."

Chris Taylor, Chief and Executive Director of Fire-Rescue-EMS, added, "Campbellsville Fire-Rescue and EMS is excited to be able to be partner with Taylor Regional Hospital with the use of TWIAGE. This new technology will assist with emergency department staff by having accurate pre-hospital patient information on a secure HIPAA-compliant platform. We can actually send pictures of EKG strips, pictures of trauma injuries and patient information to speed up the ER process. This will decrease EMS wait times and increase efficiency. Emergency department staff will also be able to have real time GPS-estimated time of arrival for incoming medic units. The TWIAGE system will aid in situational awareness and coordination which will be a positive result for our patients."
