WMEMS Regional Ambulance MDTs

Funds were awarded to Western Massachusetts Emergency Medical Services (WMEMS) to purchase Mobile Data Terminals – Toughbook laptops for ambulance services in western Massachusetts. The project also provided Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) compliant reporting software. MDTs were supplied to 42 ambulance service departments. OEMS now requires all ambulance run reports to be filed electronically. The MDTs and software allow EMS personnel to enter and record data while they are on a call and then to easily submit that data when the call is finished. This streamlined process greatly enhances the efficiency of the EMS reporting process. This project was completed in 2013.
