Connectivity Features

Emergency personnel know that rescues can happen anywhere and at any time. Whether the emergency incident is over the side of a highway or inside a high-rise structure, any equipment requiring constant Internet connection has the potential to lose that connectivity. An ePCR system that requires constant Internet connection cannot guarantee that a signal is always available and that liability could potentially impact your personnel’s ability to perform. An even worse scenario experienced by some Internet dependent ePCR systems was losing the Internet connection halfway through the incident and losing all the data that was entered on the ePCR. The Medic Clipboard was designed by first responders to be a fail-safe program that does not rely on Internet connection to generate an ePCR. The Medic Clipboard is programmed so that the user can complete the ePCR at the location of the patient, regardless of internet connection. As emergency personnel operate in a wide range of environments, having the rescue vehicle equipped with an Internet connection “hot spot” is one method of providing your personnel with the ability to transmit an ePCR. When EMS personnel are ready, they can return to their vehicle and upload the information using the vehicle’s “hot spot” Internet connection with no loss of data from the ePCR. Agencies with the responsibility of public safety require fail-safe equipment that can perform in any environment; anything less is unacceptable. The Medic Clipboard is the ePCR that works anywhere, at anytime.

Does your agency respond with multiple resources to an emergency? Do EMT personnel arrive at an incident first with paramedic personnel arriving later? The Medic Clipboard is “Bluetooth” capable and allows first arriving EMT personnel the ability to transmit information to later arriving paramedic personnel. When transmitting information via “Bluetooth,” the iPad 2 looks for and identifies the receiving unit. With the simple click of a button, personnel can transfer the information back and forth as often as they need to.

The initial set-up of the Medic Clipboard includes integration with the Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) used by your agency. Our system was by designed by experienced first responders who realized that ePCR systems requiring constant Internet connection are extremely vulnerable and would not be an acceptable format for our software. Emergency incidents can happen anywhere, at any time, where internet access may not be available. Jurisdictional areas may have multiple responses occurring at the same time and CAD information must be routed to the correct responding unit. The Medic Clipboard design allows for the user to “pull” information for that specific response instead of having CAD “push” the information, thereby eliminating any Internet connection concerns. Dispatch information is retrieved when the first responder has Internet connection and auto populates predetermined data fields. As the incident unfolds or when the incident is concluded, the first responder can “pull” the information and update the predetermined fields. If the first responder doesn’t update the predetermined fields, the Medic Clipboard system has a post incident database feature allowing the upload of CAD information to the incident, ensuring accurate records are properly documented and archived. The Medic Clipboard and your CAD system integrate in an efficient manner that is reliable and reduces the workload for your first responders.

The Medic Clipboard is fully capable of sending the patient’s emergency medical report in a digital format to the receiving hospitals. As an example, in Los Angeles County, the Medic Clipboard can send patient information through the dedicated emergency medical communications network utilized by receiving hospitals. There are however many hospitals not yet capable of receiving patient information in a wireless format. As an alternative, the Medic Clipboard can print the patient’s medical report in a PDF and first responders can hand off the hard copy to hospital staff. The Medic Clipboard’s print option enables the device to look for nearby printers and sends the information via bluetooth to the designated printer. In some cases, agencies have installed low cost printers on their rescue units as a back-up when there is a need for a hard copy. While future standards will be moving to a completely wireless transmission of data, most agencies are still using paper hard-copies for the patient “hand off.” The Medic Clipboard is programmed for tomorrow’s standards and yet is fully functional in today’s world, so no matter what requirements your agency has, the Medic ClipBoard can tackle them.

Agencies that bill for emergency medical services provided to patients use a host of different software products to facilitate the expedient and efficient recovery of funds spent for these services. During the set-up of the Medic Clipboard, our software will be integrated with your custom billing software application and billing cycles will be set according to your specifications. Your agency will have control to designate mandatory data field information that is entered by first responders, ensuring billing information is complete for every patient. In Los Angeles County, CA., the Medic Clipboard has been set up with Whittman Enterprises LLC, a third party billing service used by many agencies that provide emergency medical services. Whatever transmission “language” is used by your billing agency, the Medic Clipboard can be perfected to interface with it, significantly improving the process used for the collection of reimbursable medical expenditures.
