Our Solution

Our Solution

Coordination and documentation software that doesn’t distract from patient care.

Peak Response mobile app and web dashboard

Peak Response simplifies real-time patient data capture by combining user-centered design principles and powerful modern technology. Originally created to be used during mass casualty incidents, the Peak Response software performs under pressure and without pulling attention away from patient care and coordination. Using a combination of hands-free voice-to-text form filling, instant information syncing, accurate time-stamping, and integrated data transfer, the software enables first responders to document patients and coordinate care with ease during regular incidents and mass casualties alike.

Peak Response was designed to work well with existing tools and protocols and can be run on smartphones, tablets, and laptops already owned by many departments, so no proprietary hardware is required. The data collected by the software helps with real-time care and can easily transfer into an electronic patient care report for more accurate final documentation after an incident is complete.

Our Story

Dedicated to providing life saving efficiency.

Peak Response (originally NaTriage) was initially conceptualized in 2019 as part of the Tech to Protect Challenge, sponsored by NIST PSCR, aimed at fostering technological innovation for emergency responders. The solution came out of a focus on a common pain point: time spent documenting injuries and incidents at the scene of mass casualty incidents. These incidents are chaotic, high-pressure environments where time spent documenting can mean the difference between life and death. The quick tag scan and speech-to-text form filling were the first features, but the solution quickly expanded to include a variety of powerful sorting and data export options to improve efficiency, both at the point of contact with the patient and also for the incident commander monitoring the entire scene.

The Peak Response software has now expanded beyond mass casualties and a version designed specifically for quick daily patient documentation is in development and testing.
