Abstract

The goal of this research is to explore the feasibility of providing a low-cost Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to assist underserved Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies of all sizes to better analyze and improve operations through real-time data analysis. Delivering a data analysis suite tuned to key performance indicators of EMS agencies as an online, cloud subscription will result in a dramatically less expensive solution while remaining fiscally sustainable. The vision for this research is to provide several interface designs within one application to support differing use cases and accommodate a range of off-the-shelf hardware. In particular, it will support use on multiple devices with varying screen sizes to enable utility both in the office and in the field.
