Sedgwick County EMS Enhances Emergency Responses with Mobile Gateway
System Status Management ensures the Right Response at the Right Time
In Motion Technology and Bradshaw Consulting Services, Inc. have announced that Sedgwick County Emergency Medical Service has deployed the onBoard™ Mobile Gateway and MARVLIS™ (Mobile Area Routing and Vehicle Location Information System) to improve communications and increase efficiency in its emergency dispatch, routing, and operations, improving response times and patient outcomes.
Sedgwick County Emergency Medical Service is the primary agency in Sedgwick County responsible for Advanced Life Support out-of-hospital care and transportation of area residents. In 2010, Sedgwick County EMS responded to 52,815 calls for service and is a regional Basic Life Support Training Center for the American Heart Association.
Scott Hadley, EMS Director, Sedgwick County Emergency Medical Service, said, “We needed a communications platform and software solution that would support our latest enhancements and upgrades to dispatch and deployment practices, automated scheduling, and patient care reporting for the entire health care system. In Motion Technology and Bradshaw Consulting Services are providing us with the tools we needed to support our mobile healthcare technology to benefit the citizens of Sedgwick County.”
MARVLIS provides the ability for EMS agencies to execute dynamic System Status Management – the practice of extrapolating, based on past calls, the likelihood and location of future calls for help. With this knowledge in hand, EMS agencies can position ambulances in areas where these calls are most likely to occur, reducing total response times and ultimately improving patient outcomes. The onBoard Mobile Gateway, besides providing secure and reliable communications for ECGs, patient care reports, and other on-board devices, plays a critical role in dispatch and vehicle location, because if communications are not reliable, dispatch information cannot be shared with crews as needed.
Bradshaw Consulting Services, Inc., is a market leading provider of unique software solutions that help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of local public safety agencies with Geographic Information Systems (“GIS”), enhances Sedgwick County EMS’ dispatch and deployment with the Mobile Area Routing & Vehicle Location Information System (MARVLIS™). MARVLIS is bringing fundamental changes to the management and deployment of time sensitive services such as intelligent routing, live geographical display of current resources, and on-demand innovative analysis. MARVLIS is a family of integrated products designed to reach the bottom line: saving time by getting the right resources to the right location at the right time to best meet Sedgwick County EMS needs.
