Transcript of "7 Signs Your ePCR Is Underperforming"

  1. 1. 1 It is not user friendly enough to use at the patient’s side. Many ePCR systems are complex and not easy to use in a dynamic environment. As a result, medics often choose not to use their ePCR software during a call. Instead, they rely on memory when completing the patient care report at the hospital or the station. A high performance ePCR matches your medic’s workflow so he—not the software—runs the call. 6 Signs Your ePCR Is Underperforming
  2. 2. 2 It assumes your patient speaks English. The number of people in the U.S. who speak a language other than English has nearly tripled over the past three decades. Unless your medics are bilingual, they will likely come across a patient who doesn’t speak English at some point in their career. A language barrier is also a barrier to patient care.

  3. 3. 3 It requires an IT degree to keep it running. Many ePCR solutions require a high degree of technical experience just to keep things going. These same systems are very expensive to upgrade, leaving you with dated technology within just a year or two. Meanwhile, you just want to focus on the patient, not the software. Choose an ePCR that requires zero maintenance on your part and includes free upgrades and training. 6 Signs Your ePCR Is Underperforming
  4. 4. 4 It doesn’t talk to the hospital. Start with a high performing ePCR Hospital sends patient outcome to EMS Doctor on next shift can view the complete record Pre-register patient while EMS is enroute 6 1 5 2 Patient’s EMS record attaches to the hospital EMR ER assembles a team and prepares for the patient 4 3 ePCR is automatically sent to the ER ePCRs, by definition, don’t speak HL7—the language of hospitals. As a result, EMS resorts to phone calls and faxes to notify the ER they are on their way, print patient care reports at the hospital, and call to get a patient’s outcome. A high performing ePCR uses a data exchange to communicate with hospitals.. 6 Signs Your ePCR Is Underperforming
  5. 5. 5 It is a data collection tool only. A high-performance ePCR should do more than collect patient data. Your ePCR should double as an on-scene reference tool, helping your medics provide the best patient care. For example, your ePCR should be able to help your medics screen for a stroke as well as view their patient’s previous care record. Do more than collect data. Provide your medics with an on-scene reference tool. 6 Signs Your ePCR Is Underperforming
  6. 6. 6 It takes more than two clicks to enter patient data. Field software shouldn’t slow down a medic. It should work seamlessly and follow his or her workflow. They should never be more than two clicks away from the information they need to complete a patient care record. Look for software that has the flexibility your medics need in their ever-changing environment. Happy medics are productive medics. 6 Signs Your ePCR Is Underperforming
  7. 7. 7 It does not seamlessly integrate with your other technology. Today’s world of emergency medicine is infused with technology—CAD systems, monitors, billing systems, NFIRS reporting, etc.—which need to be interconnected. A high performing ePCR system serves as the digital hub, connecting, collecting, and sharing data between all of these systems. It’s the key to integrating your healthcare technology and creating a seamless experience for medics and patients alike. The high performing ePCR is a digital hub, connecting EMS technology so information can be easily shared and patient care improved.
