CrashHelp is a smartphone-based system that enables emergency responders to collect multimedia data about crash victims on-scene and send it directly into emergency rooms, providing hospitals with advance notification of crash severity and related information that can be used to best prepare for the patient’s arrival.

A pilot study is currently under way in central Minnesota. For this study, the CrashHelp system was adapted to meet the specific needs of rural EMS and emergency practitioners and has been implemented at the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center (CRMC) and its ambulance service provider in Crosby, Minnesota.
