ElanTech has announced that it has received a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract.
The Phase I SBIR will explore the feasibility of developing an architecture design for a real-time monitoring, analysis and notification solution for small to mid-sized EMS organizations available at an affordable cost. The results of this effort will further enhance the solutions that ElanTech is able to offer as part of its public safety software solutions division, DataTech911.
The efforts under this contract will include a study defining a common set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that high performance EMS agencies use to manage performance. The defined KPIs will provide the data elements necessary to support real-time monitoring, analysis, and notification of performance and quality of care issues. The effort will also include database research in optimizing the extraction of the data elements from varied EMS databases.
“We are excited about this Phase I SBIR from DHS S&T, as it illustrates the need for all EMS agencies, regardless of budget and resources, to have the ability to assess performance through statistical analytics,” stated Michael Salonish, Vice President, ElanTech.
