EMS PSO Data Entry Webinar a Success

September 12, 2014    |   By: Calevir

The Center recently hosted an EMS data entry webinar to assist new participants in entering events.   Established and new participants were able to use this webinar   to focus on how to use special features of the Verge platform, as well as how to enter events into ShareSuite.   We hope it gave insight on how to enter some of the events that new participants might need help with.   Alex Christgen describes the Verge platform as “a robust tool that offers many opportunities above and beyond adverse reporting”.     One of the many features is that ShareSuite participants can run reports and start to understand trends or explore areas for quality improvement.   Recent updates on the reporting fields have shortened the time necessary to enter an event.

  • Medication Errors
  • Airway Management issues
  • Equipment/Device/Supply issues
  • Ambulance Crash
