I knew what was needed and there was nothing available on the market to meet the need. So I designed and built this system with the patient and emergency responder interaction in mind. It needed to be simple to use, easy to update, and have rapid access to critical information. RescueVoice is the answer.

Company History

RescueVoice was founded by Dennis Doherty MICP, EMT/P, a physician-trained, advanced mobile intensive care paramedic at King County Medic One for more than 30 years, and Emmett Lenihan, a successful entrepreneur with extensive experience launching, operating and growing start-up businesses. In response to the strong demand for First Responders to have access to critical medical information, these two health care visionaries developed a partnership and set out to bring the highest level of response to clients during medical emergencies.

Mr. Doherty has spent the last several decades mastering the craft and science of emergency medical services, management and care. He is an accomplished entrepreneur, holding many pending patents, and a respected business professional with extensive consulting experience in the medical device industry. Dennis's hands-on knowledge of providing emergency medical care sets the tone and culture of the company, and his real life work experience ensures that RescueVoice never loses sight of the enormity and significance of saving lives. After considerable discussions with others in the field, he developed RescueVoice with his wife, Alidene Doherty (RN, BSN), a critical care nurse.

Emmett Lenihan is known as a pre-eminent entrepreneur for his successful management skills during his many years as owner of Lenihan Distribution. Since retiring from his role as CEO/Chairman of the company, Emmett has remained active as a recognized business consultant. Emmett's business acumen and financial expertise brings to RescueVoice a critical set of credentials that are essential in creating the business model.
