Rhode Island Hospital, a partner in the Lifespan Health Care System in Rhode Island, developed the Rapid Emergency Satellite Communications System, or RESCQ, the first statewide, fully interoperable, utility-independent, standardized, mobile emergency communications in the nation, said Lifespan. RESCQ's goal is to support robust collaboration among health care providers and emergency management agencies to improve medical care delivery in emergency situations--as well as provide a collaborative emergency response model that can be easily replicated elsewhere. The RESCQ system consists of palletized, highly mobile and self-contained assemblies of customized communications equipment comprised to form a complete emergency communications platform. The units are designed to be fully independent and customized to support emergency communications. The pallets employ standardized components and provide for bridging of disparate, two-way radio networks, gateways to medical information, and phone calling capabilities with an internal dialing plan between units. The system can be set up in about 20 minutes and provides instant phone, Internet and radio connection, from anywhere in the world.
