Good communication is vital in the pressurised environment of ambulance services. Ambulance management solutions help communicate key information to all stakeholders, reducing misunderstandings and improving safety and patient outcomes.
When mobilising resources to meet response targets and improve patient outcomes, ambulance service organisations are attempting to balance the safety of staff against the requirement to rapidly make decisions on how resources should be deployed.
Ensuring the safety of staff and making the best decisions is best achieved by connecting people and vehicles at every step along their journey. Our solutions help ensure there are no misunderstandings, that information is clear and that paramedics are safe throughout the connected journey.
Trapeze connects the vehicle paramedic, control centre and hospital through its MDT in-vehicle hardware, solution, communications interfaces and advanced dashboards. All ambulance service stakeholders are connected at each stage of the journey, by providing access to the critical information they need when they need it. The ambulance management solution helps you improve patient response times, enhance patient outcomes and helps ensure paramedics’ safety.
