USA based M2M services provider Zipit Wireless says that American Medical Response (AMR) will incorporate its Enterprise Critical Messaging Solution into their ambulances.
Once implementation is complete, the Zipit solution, which operates on Verizon's 3G network, will integrate with AMR's emergency field operations and dispatching systems.
"We are extremely excited to be partnering with Zipit Wireless to enhance our emergency field communications with their industry leading critical messaging solution", said Tom Landers, enterprise telecom manager for AMR's parent company, Envision Healthcare.
The Zipit solution provides a real time "critical messaging dashboard" that tracks and logs every message, providing metrics that offer visibility into operational performance and accountability for field personnel. Unlike traditional paging systems, Zipit's communications data is encrypted and complies with HIPAA.
Lost or stolen Zipit devices can also be "wiped" remotely; ensuring private health information is protected.
