Critical Communications


Many medical services make use of ADTEC’s critical communication products including transportation, hospital resource sharing, information sharing and medical emergencies.

The Medical transport industry involves not only transfers and emergencies but also multiple modes of transport. Ambulances, whether road or air, are able to coordinate the transport of patients effectively within the constraints of priority, economy and the hospital resources. This ability can save time, money and reduce the stress placed on all those involved in the critical care of patients.

During a natural disaster such as a bushfire, cyclone, heatwave or flood medical services are often stretched beyond capacity or even damaged. This calls for a widespread coordination of available emergency services both in the transport and treatment of patients. A Critical Conference can manage such an event response so that the usage of both resources and available personnel is optimised. An Alert Notifier can be also used to notify Medical staff where they should report to work.

A medical emergency can occur anywhere, anytime. In a hospital, on an operating table, in an office building, on a street or in a remote location. ADTECs Critical Conferencing service can connect medical staff, specialists and transportation personnel quickly so that the best decisions are made. This facility can save time, money and more importantly someone’s life.


A doctor has a difficult decision to make regarding a patient who is critically ill. A medical team has been caring for him for several months including several specialists.  It’s the weekend and no-one else is on the team is in the hospital. To ring them all would take a long time. The Doctor makes one phone call and within minutes a team of five is discussing the patient, his history, complications associated with different procedures and best outcomes. A decision is made which all understand and are in agreement. 

The result is the best decision was made, the least amount of time was taken and people were disturbed as little as possible.


There has been a major bus accident on a highway outside a major city. There are many injured and access is limited by the traffic chaos that results. The first ambulance arrives and assesses the situation and begins a Critical Conference with other ambulance services on route including helicopter rescue services and police rescue response units. A plan of action is devised taking into account the injured, available medical treatment and the arrival times of medical transportation services.
