LifeBot is an all-in-one emergency telemedicine platform that allows doctors or surgeons to examine patients and prep them as they're being transported in the ambulance. LifeBot's most attractive feature is its aggregation of cellular networks that maintain a constant connection between the ambulance and hospital.

The Best Telemedicine Software of 2019

The Verdict

LifeBot was originally developed for military use and is now available for civilian hospital use for emergency and disaster relief efforts. The telemedicine software can be implemented in ambulances, EMT kits or mobile clinics to relay patient information to doctors miles away.

The platform relays a nearly unbreakable connection to the designated physician who can view everything going on in the ambulance from a computer or tablet. Biometric data taken with remote instruments – blood pressure, glucose and vitals – are automatically transmitted to the doctor.

LifeBot detects the strongest cellular signal in the area and uses it. If the ambulance moves out of that provider's service area, the telemedicine program then detects the next best signal and attaches itself to that before the connection is broken. In the event the ambulance enters an area with absolutely no signal, it saves the data, prioritizes the most important information to send to the doctor and transmits it before the signal cuts out.

When installed in an ambulance, up to five cameras can be connected, allowing for different angles to be viewed by the physician. (Physicians can even control the zoom and pan of each camera.) A GPS function estimates the ambulance's location and provides an estimated time of arrival to hospital crew.

Doctors can communicate with ambulance crew through several means, including using the Samsung-provided tablet to draw on the tablet screen to instruct EMTs or illustrate certain points. Using this method, the doctor can point to areas of interest EMTs should be focusing on. Data saved and sent by LifeBot is encrypted, as is the video and audio feedback.

Other features include an inventory management system to keep track of tools and supplies, a driver's license scanner to quickly upload and access a patient's electronic health record and to locate contact information for family, and text messaging for sensitive data that needs to remain private.

Continual communication between the ambulance crew and the doctor is LifeBot's top priority, so much so that it will swing from network to network to establish and maintain a consistent connection so doctors and EMTs do not miss anything when every second counts.
