In Motion Technology, the leader in flexible, secure and enduring wireless systems that improve an organizations’ ability to communicate on the move, announced today that North Jefferson County Ambulance District (NJCAD), a public governmental entity serving the citizens of Northwest Jefferson County, is improving patient care by reducing time critical diagnosis (TCD) with the help of the onBoard™ Mobile Gateway.

The Gateway allows NJCAD paramedics to securely send ECG and patient data from the field to the emergency room, so doctors can make a preliminary diagnosis and direct care immediately. Heart and brain injury patients will benefit from a reduction in critical diagnosis time and NJCAD will improve patient care and outcomes.

After being dispatched, the Gateway provides crews with secure connectivity so they can complete paperwork/billing, review schedules, check emails and perform other administrative tasks. This keeps ambulances and medics on the road, increasing utilization and efficiency, and reducing response times.

“With In Motion Technology’s onBoard™ system we are able to decrease door-to- balloon times and enable the ERs to be better prepared for patient arrivals, said John Scullin, Chief, North Jefferson County Ambulance District. “Knowing seconds count, we are committed to providing the best care we can for our patients and reducing time critical diagnosis.”

In Motion Technology’s onBoard™ Mobile Gateway extends the emergency room to the field, enabling medics to provide improved pre-hospital care. The Gateway turns ambulances into wireless hotspots, providing seamless, secure connectivity to tablets, laptops, 12-Lead ECGs, scanners, printers and other devices in and around the ambulance. The onBoard™ Mobility Manager provides the ability to analyze information from each Gateway in the field via a dashboard which shows ambulance locations, and monitors vehicle diagnostics, devices and networks.

“In Motion Technology is building the communications platform that will ensure NJCAD EMS is equipped with the most reliable solution to support all their devices and applications,” said Tony Morris, In Motion Technology’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We are proud to be their mobile networking infrastructure partner.”
