ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® Earns FirstNet® Certified™ Designation
First Responders Can Now Access ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® via the FirstNet App Catalog
Miami, FL., March 9, 2021 – Following a rigorous review process, ERinfoPro for FirstNet® is now FirstNet Certified™ and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.
ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® is a unique medical alert service that provides medical first responders access to victim emergency information through a direct connection to FirstNet®, the only nationwide, high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated to and purpose-built for America’s first responders and the extended public safety community. ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® provides patient recognition and emergency contact notification to help improve patient outcomes and reduce treatment times. It is available and free to all first responders using FirstNet.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders, featuring more than 150 apps relevant to public safety’s mission. This gives FirstNet subscribers a dedicated location to find meaningful new solutions that have been specifically reviewed for use with FirstNet services.
“As an EMT and surgical resident, I learned early in my career about the value of being able to access a victim’s emergency information in the field,” said Dr. Paige Finkelstein MD, MPH, NREMT, Medical Director and ERinfo Co-Founder. “ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® is a disruptive new platform that moves compliance from the patient to the first responder. For the first time, people do not have to wear a medical alert bracelet, carry an ID, or have their phone with them when found unconscious or non-communicative during an emergency. ERinfo’s patented facial recognition technology provides first responders with a convenient and fast way to recognize a victim and immediately access their emergency information and contacts.”
ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® is available free for all first responders using FirstNet and they can enroll their high frequency and underserved patients at no cost. This social benefit will help to reduce treatment times and improve outcomes on a wider scale than ever available before.
Achieving a FirstNet Certified™ designation means ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® is a heavily vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent third-party tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and availability, as well as review by the App Review board which includes the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority). As a FirstNet Certified™ app, ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® has been confirmed to meet those requirements, as well as higher requirements for mobility, scalability and resiliency.
Additionally, FirstNet subscribers will also be able to take advantage of the ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® solution while benefitting from the enhanced security provided by the FirstNet network core, which is the only physically separate network core dedicated entirely to public safety in America.
ERinfoPRO is one of the first third-party apps to integrate the FirstNet Single Sign-On service. This allows first responders to immediately access the ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® in critical scenarios, reducing response times even further. By signing on at the beginning of the shift, first responders know they are a click from accessing the tools they need to fulfill their mission.
Built with AT&T, in public-private partnership with the FirstNet Authority, FirstNet is bringing public safety communications into the 21st century with new, innovative capabilities to strengthen first responders’ incident response. And it’s helping them connect to the critical information they need – every day and in every emergency.
“We only add applications to the FirstNet App Catalog that are highly secure, high quality, and relevant to public safety. And we’re pleased that ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® is now Certified and available to FirstNet subscribers,” said Scott Agnew, assistant vice president, product marketing, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® will bring public safety additional capabilities to identify unconscious or other non-communicative victims and to retrieve their emergency information and reach out to their contacts in near real time, at the scene of any emergency, mass casualty or natural disaster.”
“Through our work with first responders, we heard their need for innovative applications to assist with their lifesaving mission. FirstNet is helping to address these needs, and we are pleased to welcome ERinfoPRO for FirstNet® to the FirstNet App Catalog,” said Jeff Bratcher, Chief Network and Technology Officer, FirstNet Authority.
