ESO announces release of ePCR Buying Guide
Leading healthcare software and data company for EMS, fire provides free educational resource for buyers of EMS ePCR/EHR
AUSTIN, Texas — ESO Solutions, Inc., a leading data and software company serving emergency medical services, fire departments and hospitals, announced today that it has released “7 Secrets of Smart ePCR Buyers,” a free educational resource to help EMS software buyers make the best decision for their agencies’ patient documentation software.
“Years ago, ePCRs were basically electronic versions of old paper forms, and choosing the best system for an EMS agency’s needs was straightforward,” said Kenny Schnell, Vice President and General Manager of ESO’s Electronic Health Record product line. “Today, EMS patient documentation software has grown to be much more sophisticated, both in advanced capabilities and in keeping with the latest NEMSIS 3 and state-level EMS reporting requirements,” he said.
“Add in the need for quality officers and chiefs to be able to use software to analyze the EMS data that ePCR/EHR systems generate, and buying the right software becomes a mission-critical decision,” Schnell said. “Yet there’s little guidance for EMS software buyers, which is why we created this guide.”
“ESO EHR is the next generation of ePCR,” Schnell added. “If an EMS agency’s approach to patient documentation hasn’t evolved over the past few years, and if they haven’t looked at upgrading from their old ePCR system, that agency is going to get left behind.”
“7 Secrets of Smart ePCR Buyers” is formatted as a practical, vendor-neutral guide that can help make the buying process easier for EMS agencies of any size.
