EMSTimers Professional is an electronic Patient Care Report (ePCR) app specifically designed for Emergency Medical Services personnel such as EMTs and paramedics. It tracks a patient through the various stages of handling a patient: Dispatch, Patient Contact, Transport, Hospital, Cleared, and In Service.
EMS Timers Professional also has password protection and the ability to save multiple patients' data. Patient data includes (optionally) patient name, address, date of birth, telephone number, venue, and event. EMS Timers Professional also has the ability to record multiple assessments for each patient. Each assessment includes systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and SPO2. For each assessment, additional medical information such as chief complaint, clinical impression, medical history, allergies, current medications, treatments, and an extensive narrative may optionally be recorded.
EMS Timers Professional provides the ability to back up all patient data to your Dropbox account and to restore the data on any iOS device. The data in the Dropbox account can also be accessed by a user of the related application, EMS Timers Central.
EMS Timers Professional provides an option for central administration. This option allows an EMS service to provide a file on a web site that has pre-approved text for entering patient history data. This is turned on and off by a setting in the iPhone Settings Application section for EMS Timers.
EMS Timers Professional also allows you to choose one or more items of patient bibliographic data (i.e., name, address, etc.) to email. Assessments are always emailed if an email is sent.
The app includes an Apple Watch OS2 version that has some of the functionality of the iOS version. It can run independently of the iPhone once it is loaded into the Apple Watch from the iPhone. The Watch app does not include re-assessent timers and does not save patient data.
