OPEN Incorporated, makers of the SafetyPAD® suite of software products for Fire and Emergency Medical Services, announced its partnership with three additional Hamilton County, Ohio agencies.  Forest Park, Lockland, and Golf Manor Fire Departments have completed their training this month bringing the total amount of agencies in the county that are using the system to five.

“There is no doubt that calls for service continue to increase annually, while budgets are stagnating or decreasing,” said Lockland Fire-Rescue Chief James Benjamin. “With that in mind, we had to identify a software that would enable us to provide quality medical documentation in an easy to use and user friendly format. SafetyPAD met all these requirements and with that in mind, it made perfect sense to adopt SafetyPAD in order to better serve our citizens. We anticipate providing even better service, while lessening our administrative overhead and other associated costs by streamlining our emergency medical reporting processes."  

The SafetyPAD electronic Patient Care Reporting (ePCR) system allows agencies to better collect, utilize and share incident and patient EMS data on the scene. This empowers first responders to focus more on the patients and less on the paperwork. The technology also allows firefighters and emergency medical technicians to accurately generate pre-hospital patient care documentation in the field in real-time.  

"Forest Park, Lockland and Golf Manor witnessed the success of the system in other Hamilton County agencies, and wanted the same for their first responders,” said Scott Streicher, Chief Operating Officer for SafetyPAD.  “We’re proud that SafetyPAD gives these agencies an affordable, flexible ePCR platform that gives them the ability to take care of citizens under their care at a time when they are most needed.”

All of these Hamilton County-area agencies are also leveraging SafetyPAD’s web-based Enterprise Reporting and CaseFlow modules that provide detailed analysis of calls, procedures, status of report preparation, monitoring and corrective action requirements as well as customizable reports to meet the public’s need for information. The system’s unique Enterprise Agent module allows near real-time information to be sent to key personnel in the event of catastrophic or widespread conditions occur that could affect the public’s need for medical response. The departments will be able to provide rapid, appropriate and timely response based upon current conditions in the field.

In addition to Forest Park, Lockland and Golf Manor, the other Hamilton County, Ohio agencies deploying the system are Reading and Green Township. In all, now six departments in the state are using SafetyPAD.

Founded in 1993, OPEN Incorporated is a leader in electronic patient care reporting that develops software products for the Fire & EMS industry, enhancing their abilities to serve the public.  More information can be found at www.safetypad.com.
