Event first aid software

In our first review, we will examine the niche software for the event first aid industry known as pracflo from stratigence software.

Having been involved in the event first aid industry in the past, I was astounded by the lack of software available. This is where pracflo came in.

The software allows full quoting function, to quote up events that medical staff will be working at, through to finding staff to work the event by SMS or email notifications, allowing staff to express interest in a shift.

Once the event starts, pracflo allows patient care reports to be created and full management notes taken from within the easy to use app. Each staff member has their own login, and logs the treatment, and can export the PCR as a PDF file. The administrators are notified by custom alerts (Email/SMS or pushover) of any new cases that staff create in the field.

There is an live event feed to display on projectors, and audit functions for each case. Not to mention a basic version of CAD (Computer aided dispatch) which can dish out jobs to units in the field by SMS.

Once the event is over, a post event report can be generated and emailed to the client which shows fancy graphs and patient care statistics.

All in all, a very good program that wont cost you an arm and a leg. A must have if you are in the event first aid space.
