ImageTrend, a software application developer, is bridging the information and communications gap between first responders and emergency room physicians with a powerful, secure electronic patient records management platform. Using the Adobe Flash Platform and Adobe ColdFusion, ImageTrend created the Hospital Dashboard (an Adobe MAX 2010 Awards finalist) so emergency response personnel and physicians could share medical records before a patient arrives at an emergency room. This paperless solution helps physicians make better decisions about how to care for patients and increases the likelihood of saving a life.
ImageTrend chose to develop the Hospital Dashboard using the Flash Platform because it allows the company to quickly develop, launch and maintain secure, enterprise-level applications—with the potential to expand services to mobile phones and other devices in the future. One of the key technologies used was Adobe ColdFusion, which let ImageTrend expand the user-interface to securely deliver data over the Web and display the information on TVs in the ER.
Along with Adobe ColdFusion, the Hospital Dashboard uses applications built with the Flex framework to gather real-time information and transfer it to an interactive dashboard, which displays the data across various Web browsers. Additionally, Adobe Flash Builder allowed ImageTrend developers to instantly create a higher performing application using features designed to build Flex applications with a ColdFusion back-end. With Adobe’s tools, ImageTrend had what they needed to develop and launch an application at a faster pace while managing millions of patient records more efficiently and lowering hospital costs.
