Surge Launches Dedicated Medtech Brand

In 2019, Surge partnered with the Great North Air Ambulance who were looking for a way to move away from paper records and keep a digital log of all the work they do including individual patient interactions. This led to the creation of ARCEMS, a system that enables paramedics to capture patient details wherever they are working via a mobile app.

Capturing this information lets air ambulance services maintain a full audit log of their activities and then use this information to identify areas of improvement meaning patient care is continuously reviewed and enhanced.

Following roll-outs at the Great North Air Ambulance, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, the ARCEMS software then evolved to help out in the world of critical care patient transfers and the new ARCCTS software was born.

In 2020, Retrieve South West, headed up by Scott Grier, who is also National Critical Care transfer lead at NHS England, began using ARCCTS. The software proved essential during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, where at its busiest there were 2,300 intensive-care patients moved between UK hospitals from September 2020 to March 2021, which represented a year-on-year increase of 191.5%.

Speaking about the relationship with Surge, Grier said: “At times of significant pressure on our service during the recent pandemic wave, their support was an important part of our service’s ability to deliver critical care transfer to patients in the South West and beyond.”

Following the continued growth and evolution of their software Surge have recently launched a new sub-brand Surge MedTech.

Chief commercial officer Bruce Watson said: “Following some of the great traction we’ve had over the past few years we feel the time is right to have a dedicated brand in the medtech space in order to raise further awareness of our software. It’s an exciting time as we’ve just launched our new website and have already begun work on the next evolution of our software. The team is incredibly proud of the software, as they can see it is helping make a huge difference to how patients are cared for every day.”
