Pasadena Company Aims to Slash Unnecessary and Expensive Trips By Ambulance to Hospital Emergency Rooms


A new startup in Pasadena is seeking to add telehealth services to emergency ambulance responses, which it says will prevent countless unnecessary and expensive trips to emergency rooms.
Eighty-five percent of people taken to emergency treatment centers by ambulance in the U.S. each year could be treated in home or clinic settings, said Tele911 co-founder and CEO Dr. Marc Eckstein.
