Using HIH to automatically populate the EMR with details from EMS has been very helpful for us. By reducing personnel labor and the amount of paper used, we have been able to use the staff's time more efficiently. The ER doctors have especially benefited, since they can quickly and easily view the prehospital data at the same time as triage notes before they work with a patient.

I work with all of the hospitals, fire departments and EMS agencies in the county on a daily basis, and continually hear how easy it is at the hospital to access run reports, update records for billing and make the process smoother for physicians. I have only had a positive experience working with ImageTrend.
