Ryan Orton, Superintendent of Education & Training at the Oxford County Paramedic Services, says that the auto-populating of ePCR forms was a big success among paramedics.
“The integration of CADLink and our iMedic ePCR is fantastic. Now that we have a real-time data connection with the communication centre, we don’t need to do a follow-up after every call. CADLink gets our crews back on the road in no time.”
Prior to implementing CADLink, Oxford County Paramedic Services had limited GPS software in their vehicles. They had some ad hoc systems in place, but at the end of the day, paramedics ended up using paper maps.
“Before, we had to get the information from the dispatch centre, look it up on the computer, figure out how to get there – it could take some time before we started driving, especially when the call was outside of Oxford County,” – Ryan Orton said.
CADLink navigation and mapping became a big improvement for the service: a robust mobile data terminal not only lays out the best route but also saves time.
