Metro West Fire Protection District Case Study
Leveraging Data to Advance Patient Care
Metro West, a five-station fire department with EMS services, sought to turn call data into improved training and better patient care. To do that, they needed quality data that could easily be filtered, analyzed, and made actionable. On a recommendation from a colleague at a nearby agency, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Brad Shelton began researching ESO Electronic Health Record (EHR).
After implementing EHR, Shelton is able to compare Metro West’s performance data to national standards and be a better partner for their local hospital. He and his team have also been able to use the data to reinforce protocols, improve overall performance, and guide individual medic development. “What you end up with is a better patient outcome. And that’s the key thing for me,” says Shelton.
