Enterprise iPad App
The Medic ClipBoard iPad App enables first responders from the fire department to create digitized Incident Reports out in the field. Our client, Digital EMS Solutions, Inc., has created an enterprise iPad application that is currently used by a number of fire departments including:
|Burbank Fire Department||Glendale Fire Department|
|Hermosa Beach Fire Department||Monterey Park Fire Department|
|Pasadena Fire Department||San Marino Fire Department|
|West Covina Fire Department|
- Ability to View Reports: Embracing mobile technology is an important step in combating the current backlog of paperwork waiting for digital conversion, as mandated by the Electronic Medical Records initiative. The deadline for conversion of existing paper medical records to digitized format is October, 2013. The Medic ClipBoard eliminates the paperwork that is time-consuming for the first responders to complete, and can be difficult for hospital staff to read. When the patient arrives at the hospital, the doctors and nurses have access to the same medical information as the emergency personnel, streamlining patient communication and interaction, and delivering a higher level of coordinated care.
- Client Management: Unlike service-as-software applications, the Medic ClipBoard presents firefighters of the Los Angeles county with an electronic display of the exact paper field form, which has dramatically reduced the amount of training time, because data entry is familiar and intuitive. Incorporating “hot spot” display techniques, the firefighters simply tap on the field to be completed, and a box pops out for data entry. Upon completion, the form is submitted for seamless integration into both the hospital’s and the fire department’s databases.
- Incidents Management: Digitized Incident Reports can also help in the reduction of errors, while offering improvements in efficiency and quality of care, by providing real-time access to, and integration of, information across the network of providers who share the responsibility of patient care.
The Medic ClipBoard iPad App requires iOS 5.0 and higher, and was developed by our iPad app development team on the open L.A.M.P. (Linux, Apache, mySQL and PHP) platform, using a combination of Objective C to optimize device capability and leveraging HTML5 features to deliver an innovative solution that can be customized to meet each fire department’s specific form presentation requirements.
