Nowhere are limitations in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) more evident than within the first critical periods of care (the golden hour)from injury presentation, primary survey, stabilization, secondary survey, transportation, triage, and medical facility admission. Despite the commencement of clinical care, EHR limitations prevent much of this information from being captured and shared. In military and civilian operations, the field is often disconnected from medical facilities, both physically and in terms of data collected.Bio1 Systems, a technology company founded by a nurse and engineers from Stanford University, is developing a novel EHR data capture platform, addressing three core limitations: flexibility in data entry methods; robust functioning in acute/uncontrolled/non-traditional environments; and EHR continuity across disconnected groups. The proposed platform comprises a head mounted display (HMD), enabling hands-free clinical data capture and communication, and a novel disposable electronic triage tag (E-TC3) - providing for adaptable methods of documentation storage and transmission. With advancements in clinical interventions in the field, the proposed system is needed to allow clinicians to refocus on clinical care, while capturing the complexity of operations undertaken during this golden hour of survivability. This will lead to improved communication across disconnected groups and ultimately save lives.
