GoodSam App: the Most Advanced Emergency Alerting Platform
The present short essay discusses a potentially life-saving app: GoodSam. Everyone who has a smartphone is familiar with apps. Today, there are apps for almost anything. For example, there’s an app for iPhone which shows a mirror, which makes the iPhone a tool to look at yourself in the matter of seconds. While that is a relatively simple app, showing a screen that serves as a mirror, many apps are much more complex. But did you know that there is an app which allows you to save your life or the life of somebody else? The GoodSam app allows instant connection to emergency personnel and even showcasing what is going on at the scene of trauma to first responders.
Good Smartphone Activated Medics, GoodSam for short, which is also a play on words on Good Samaritan is an app that allows you to connect to emergency personnel and even to live stream what is happening. Doctors say that knowing what happened at the scene could help in response time, which is critical to saving the person. Thus, knowing what is going on before arriving at the scene could save time, which is significant in trauma situations. The app allows video streaming but not in the same way as Periscope, the app that allows streaming video live and connecting to users across the world. GoodSam sends encrypted video to protect confidentiality.
The app is used in many parts of the world, and the goal is to get more emergency personnel on board. Currently, the app is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Once the app is downloaded, there is the option to call for help. Once the option is tapped, it connects the user to the phones of the first responders and sends GPS signals. Of course, the alerter need not be the person who is injured or requires medical help. However, at the moment, the live stream option is only available for iOS but the capability will be available for Android soon.
