LocANTS is a dynamic, cloud-based software platform with the ability to better share critical information in real time between hospitals and acute care transfer teams. These teams are responsible for moving critically ill patients between hospital sites.
Through the use of monitors and smart devices, LocANTS will allow the transfer team to be able to clearly and effectively identify available resources to ensure effective decision making. It is hoped that through use of this platform transfer times will be reduced and efficiency increased leading to a significantly safer transfer service.
The Medtech Accelerator award will allow the early development and testing of the LocANTS platform within the Acute Neonatal Transfer Service (ANTS) for the East of England and allow proof of the concept for this newly forming venture.
