Electronic Patient Care Reports
Tri-Community Ambulance Service made the transition from paper patient care reports (PCR's) to electronic patient care reports (e-PCR's). Tri-Community is on our second electronic system and transitioned to electronic records several years ago.
We have found success in electronic charts with easier records management, easier record retrieval, better reporting capability and more detailed patient care reports with tailored fields based on the type of call received and type of medical condition the patient has presented with. Additionally, the added security is key in protecting our customers personal information. Our patient charts now require a username and password, where with old paper reports, these reports were stored in a clipboard until the rig returned to the station.
While there is annual investment required, the benefits far outweigh the costs. These systems are not only state-of-the-art, but also extremely user friendly for the provider.
Tri-Community is proud to use AmbuPro EMS for our patient care report needs.
