Life Link III has announced the launch of OneLinkâ¢, a mobile app that allows hospitals and first responders to request air medical transport with the click of a button, the company said.
Life Link III´s OneLinkâ¢ connects a mobile device, tablet or desktop directly to the Life Link III Communication Center to request an aircraft when critical care transport is necessary. All transport requests are transferred immediately to Life Link III´s computer aided dispatch (CAD) system to get the request initiated as quickly as possible — when time is of the essence and the patient condition is critical.
Developed in partnership with Flight Vectorâ¢, OneLinkâ¢ is available for both scene incidents and interfacility transports. In order to access the app, hospitals and first responders will be required to go through a verification process to register. Users will then be able to submit a request for air medical transport and track an immediate response.
Life Link III operates seven helicopter bases that include Alexandria, Blaine, Brainerd, Cloquet, Hibbing, and Willmar, Minnesota, and Rice Lake, Wisconsin. The company plans to open its eighth helicopter base in Marshfield, Wisconsin in 2018. The company´s helicopter and airplane services provide on-scene emergency response and inter-facility transport for patients requiring critical care. Life Link III´s transportation services are accredited by CAMTS (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transportation Services), ensuring the highest standards of quality and safety are met.
