Abstract

In this paper we describe a mobile app for - (TEEM), designed for supporting data recording and transmission during patient transportation by ambulance. TEEM allows the travelling personnel to record the most significant patient data, and to send them to the destination center, where the specialist physician will be notified and allowed to inspect the data themselves, possibly providing immediate advice. The exploitation of TEEM also allows to maintain the transportation data over time, for medico-legal purposes, or to perform a-posteriori analyses. The app is currently under evaluation at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Alessandria Children Hospital, Italy.
