CrowdOptic Signs Software Deal With ProTransport-1 to Install Google Glass in Ambulances

Companies Aim to Enhance Emergency Medical Services Using Google Glass

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwired - July 17, 2014) - CrowdOptic, a maker of mobile and wearable broadcasting solutions, and ProTransport-1, Northern California's premier medical transport provider, today announced a software sales agreement under which ProTransport-1 will deploy the CrowdOptic Google Glass broadcasting solution in its ambulances and mobile medicine units.

ProTransport-1 will use Google Glass to broadcast real-time video evaluations of patients from ambulances during transport to the receiving healthcare institutions. This technology solution will aim to improve documentation and expand medical consultative opportunities for patients en route. 

"CrowdOptic's see-what-I-see technology allows paramedics and nurses on our ambulances to broadcast the live view of complex cases to medical teams at the hospital", said Glenn Leland, Chief Strategy Officer for ProTransport-1. "We additionally envision a variety of dispatch, navigation, documentation and operational processes will migrate to CrowdOptic and Google Glass over time" Leland added.

ProTransport-1, which in 2012 pioneered an award winning "connected ambulance" solution that advance-forwarded patient medical data such as vital signs to hospitals, is once again at the leading edge of using technology for emergency medical response. "We are pleased to be working with a visionary partner in ProTransport-1," said Jim Kovach, M.D., vice president of business development for CrowdOptic, "and to be developing a solution that can eventually improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs on a wide scale across large fleets of thousands of ambulances." 

ProTransport-1 also plans to use CrowdOptic's technology to enhance the mobile medical setting, where it can enable a live, two-way educational forum between a patient in their home and the healthcare provider.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
