GPS trackers are being installed, across the country, in many types of vehicles, including emergency medical service vehicles. It would be great to be able to send the emergency medical service vehicle with GPS tracking so as to provide the quickest response time and to be able to track them more frequently while they are in-route. After the patients have been transported, the GPS tracker system can also improve billing accuracy.
Getting to an emergency situation rapidly is of the utmost importance to emergency medical service vehicles. Taking the patients back to the hospital quickly is also important. The best dispatching can be done using turn-by-turn directions to the location of patient pick-up. If there are construction zones or other obstacles, the dispatch manager can see them on the GPS tracker and relay the message to the drivers. They can also re-route the drivers by showing them the quickest, alternate route. Every second counts in saving a life, so having this information at a fingertip’s touch is critical.
Being able to have frequent updates is also a very powerful tool. Some GPS trackers update every ten seconds for when an emergency arises. This way the emergency medical service vehicle will have constant updates while it is in-route to and from the hospital. It is no doubt that by these standards, GPS tracking can be a life saver.
Later, the GPS tracker system can help with the billing process. After patients have been transported safely to the hospital, a report can be generated which will show the mileage driven, the time and distance driven. This will account for better billing accuracy for patients. Furthermore, this will improve customer service and cut down on billing disputes. The information can also be pulled later in case records get lost or if they are needed again as the GPS tracker will keep the information recorded.
Don’t let your emergency medical service vehicles be outdated, save lives quicker with GPS tracking.
