The Newest Lifesaving Device for EMS Vehicles
May 8, 2012
VALENCIA, CA—When a medical emergency occurs, every second counts. If this is a life or death situation, the outcome may hinge on how quickly your ambulance can reach its destination.
Information becomes critical. Which EMS unit should respond? What is the fastest route? Are there traffic jams? Road closures? How accessible is the emergency site? Where is the closest ER? What's the estimated time of arrival?
That's why healthcare facilities and private services are increasingly relying on LiveViewGPS Live Trac GPS vehicle tracking systems as their newest weapon in saving lives.
The Live Trac GPS system guides your ambulances as efficiently as possible. By providing real-time updates about an ambulance's exact location, the system makes it possible for you to save lives and save money.
Monitoring EMS Locations
LiveViewGPS' best-selling G-5 Vehicle Tracker operates on the company's new Live Trac Platform, a next-generation, real-time vehicle tracking system offering 1-, 5- and 10-second vehicle tracking capabilities on highly sensitive receivers. Like other Live Trac units, it works in environments where other GPS units fail.
The Live Trac GPS Platform features reliable 99.9% server uptime and requires no software to install. System updates are free, and live support is built into the platform. Users log on via their web-enabled computer or mobile device and, once connected, can track multiple vehicles in real time on a high-resolution satellite map, set geofencing (zones), find addresses, see aerial or road map views, and see historical data up to 90 days. A personal dashboard allows users to set and manage mapping, reporting and alert features to meet business or personal needs.
This system offers several benefits that can improve the services you offer your clients.
For example, you can pinpoint every vehicle to determine which EMS team is closest to the emergency. You can also give real-time, turn-by-turn directions to ambulance drivers to guide them along the fastest routes while avoiding heavy traffic and accidents.
LiveViewGPS vehicle tracking also ensures your EMS teams stay on task at all times. This can significantly help you keep accurate records about travel times, useful routes and the number of employees you need in the field during high-volume periods. Now you can:
- Monitor each ambulance to make sure EMS crews follow directions and orders properly.
- Ensure EMS crews focus on their jobs and do not take unauthorized breaks.
- Determine which routes allow drivers to reach popular destinations (hospitals, schools, nursing homes, etc.) fastest.
