Summer’s in full swing and it’s getting hot now… both the temps and the latest features of your favorite records management system. Check out what’s new from the home office in Bellingham, Washington.
The Big Event (Module)
Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback on our beta Events Module. Your comments have been overwhelmingly positive and have provided our dev team some excellent insight for enhancements. If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for? Just click this button from the legacy Events Module page:
While you’re test driving the new Events Module, be sure to run these new reports too:
Report #1773 provides you details for each event occurring within the parameters chosen.
Report #1774 is the one we’ve all been waiting for. It’s now easier than ever to track non-agency personnel attendance so you can tell your story about community participation in risk reduction and PR events.
Vehicle ID Now Appears in FuelER
Thanks to a user story provided by Jason Bilich, RPL, Chief of Administration at UniFire/St. Tammany Fire District # 12 (LA), the Vehicle ID now appears in FuelER, eliminating any confusion about which vehicle is being fueled. Thanks for the input, Chief Bilich! This is a nice win for all of our customers.
New System Notifications
Take a few minutes to explore our newest additions to the System Notifications for Incidents. These give you the ability to filter by incomplete incident narratives as well as one for incomplete incidents for first arriving units. The filters (pickers) can be used together to really refine your notifications.
NEMSIS 3 Cardiac Arrest Report
The eagerly anticipated report for NEMSIS 3 cardiac arrest incidents has deployed. Report #1772 Incident Details for Cardiac Arrest Outcomes by Patient Disposition for Date Range (NEMSIS 3 Incidents Only) provides essential QA and tracking details for cardiac arrest outcomes.
