Such as we experienced this past year with the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis can strike at any moment. Frontline workers such as paramedics know this better than anyone. As those on the frontlines of emergency responses, paramedics also know the importance of having the right tools immediately available Customized ePCR (electronic patient care reporting) software helps first responders quickly adapt to any crisis situation with limited interruptions in the field.

3 Benefits of ePCR Software Customization

In an emergency situation, these customized forms and templates are precious commodities. With a customizable ePCR software, responding to real-world crisis scenarios becomes less stressful and more streamlined.

Adaptable fire department record management software provides first responders with three major benefits, including:

  1. Optimized templates and forms
  2. Improved Metric Analysis
  3. Interagency Consistency
  4. Optimized Templates and Forms

Customized ePCR forms and templates make a paramedic’s job easier.  By tailoring EMS charting software to a specific situation, first responders waste less time on data collection and documentation. This allows for first responders to focus their time and resources on what matters most: treating patients. Customized ePCR templates and forms can be crafted — even on the fly — to seamlessly follow along with a paramedic’s workflow.  There’s no more scrolling past long blocks of text or data entry points that aren’t germane to the situation. First responders are able to focus on delivering and documenting treatments, resulting in the overall improvement of patient care.

In non-emergency situations, ePCRs can be adjusted to meet a department’s specific needs, whether it’s responding to a common situation, such as a car crash, or treating a specific population, such as veterans or specific issues, such as mental health matters.

What Are The Impacts of Remote Patient Monitoring?

By Daniel Frey, vice president of business development and co-founder, FieldMed.

Not every visit with a medical provider needs to happen in person. Remote patient monitoring allows for patient interaction and data collection outside of a traditional medical setting.

Through a mixture of technologies, such as health sensors, applications and video conferencing, remote patient monitoring allows healthcare professionals to streamline patient care, which is why it has become an integral part of community health programs. Remote patient monitoring helps medical professionals overcome barriers like distance, patient engagement and lost revenue that have long impacted their work.

Five Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring 

Also known as “telehealth monitoring,” remote patient monitoring has many benefits, including improved access to medical care providers, reduced drain on the healthcare system, better patient outcomes, patient empowerment and accountability, and increased revenue.

  1. Improved Access To Medical Care Providers

Remote patient monitoring brings medical professionals to a patient — even if they’re located hundreds of miles apart. In other words, distance is no longer a factor in a patient’s treatment.

Under the community health program model, participating medical service providers from all disciplines are brought together to respond to patient needs. If monitoring mechanisms indicate a change in a patient’s condition, the appropriate healthcare professional responds to their case. This reduces the number of stops on a patient’s care journey to connect with the right care provider.

  1. Reduced Drain On the Healthcare System

Remote patient monitoring keeps patients in their homes while receiving medical care. This is extremely important for those with compromised immunity or those who are in the beginning stages of recuperating from surgery. Their chances of contracting an infection from another person — be it a doctor, nurse, or patient — are eliminated.

Telehealth monitoring also stops unnecessary and costly trips to emergency rooms. Patients experiencing non-emergency conditions are able to skip the trip to an ER. Instead, they connect with an appropriately qualified medical professional for evaluation and care, leaving ER staff ready for true emergencies.
