Celebrating 25 Years

null

In 2017, the Johns Hopkins Lifeline critical care transportation program and Hopkins Access Line (HAL) celebrated their 25th anniversary. Since their inception in 1992, HAL and Lifeline have worked hand in hand. When a referring physician calls Johns Hopkins to transfer a patient, the call comes into HAL, where a representative coordinates the transfer. This could include connecting the physician with an attending doctor and coordinating with bed management and admitting to ensure that a room is available for the patient. Once a room is available, Hopkins Communication Center, or HopComm, then dispatches a Lifeline transportation crew, whether by ambulance or helicopter, to pick up the patient.

Lifeline is now involved in 22,000 air, ground and in-house transports each year. The HAL team currently handles 2,000 calls a week and 900 requests a month for transfers from other hospitals.
