Xplore Rugged Tablets Help Helsinki EMS Crews Move Past Paper to Deliver Better Patient Care

Helinski City Rescue Department, located in Finland, is responsible for carrying out fire, rescue and medical operations. To improve quality and achieve operational efficiency, the Rescue Department has transferred the patient care instructions into electronic format.

Designed with paramedics in mind, the Xplore Rugged Tablet PC form factor with a touch screen and detachable keyboard is ideal. Wireless data transfer capabilities are also vital. Once the emergency call center receives a call, the details of the incident are transferred wirelessly to the Xplore Rugged Tablet PCs.

Personnel are able to view all the rescue tasks and the locations of each rescue unit in real time. The solution also includes a separate module for major incidents. The system allows patients to be triaged into categories prioritizing the ones with life-threatening injuries and centrally direct patient streams to different hospitals. All the personnel using the solution – on the Xplore Rugged Tablet PC at emergency rescue units, hospitals or rescue stations - have access to the same up to-date information.
