MARVLIS User Group

For the last three years, BCS has held an annual gathering for MARVLIS Users in conjunction with the Pinnacle EMS conference. The first meeting was held in Colorado Springs during 2012 and was attended by representatives from several agencies employing the technology. Each of them was given the opportunity to share their experiences with the software suite and provide suggestions for improvements to the software as it continues to evolve. The next year’s meeting was held at the Omni Plantation on Amelia Island in Florida. Since that venue was much closer to the BCS offices in South Carolina, it allowed for more participation from the MARVLIS development and support staff. They were able to report on the progress from previous input in addition to having more extensive interaction with clients and others interested in implementing MARVLIS. The most recent event was held this past summer in Phoenix.  This gathering changed the format somewhat from a traditional meeting to a more informal sharing over dinner and drinks. Regardless of how the communication happens, BCS is keenly interested in the ideas and experiences users have with MARVLIS as a tool to improve their EMS performance. Visit this page again for plans on our next event to be held in the summer of 2015.

BCS believes strongly in the notion that EMS performance is not based solely on any software product, but understands the vital role MARVLIS plays in the overall dynamics that do measure and improve performance. It is that belief in the value of sharing thoughts and ideas around the largely set of topics that contribute to success that lead to their support of this website and the entire High Performance EMS community building efforts.  The success of BCS is directly tied to the success of each and every customer. By making the whole community stronger and better informed, we all succeed.

Culture of Safety
The idea of changing administrative behavior at the very core of how they function regarding issues of safety is also seen in the promotion of a "Just Culture" in EMS. The Center for Patient Safety discusses this idea at their website: http://www.centerforpatientsafety.org/just-culture-in-ems/

Community-Based Programs
How EMS can become a financially stable function of a local government is a hot topic right now. Jamie Davis discusses the NAEMT efforts towards changing the funding stream from the federal level in this podcast: http://www.mediccast.com/blog/2014/12/19/naemt-wants-congress-and-the-president-to-fund-ems/

Communicate, Communicate, Communicate
It only takes one bad story like this: http://www.emsworld.com/video/12029267/philadelphia-paramedic-in-hot-water-over-anti-police-image to make the public question a whole service (or even incite violence.) If your service doesn't already have a social networking presence, how can you effectively counter such bad media? You need to engage before problems arise in order to have credibility and a voice when…

How To Perform CPR: The Crucial Steps You Should Know (and Share!)
The majority of people who survive a cardiac arrest are resuscitated from ventricular fibrillation (VF) by the administration of a defibrillatory shock. This is most likely to be successful when it is given very soon after the onset of VF; emergency service personnel are often unable to arrive soon enough to help a victim. Automated…

Economic Efficiency
No one is going to challenge the idea of "rationing healthcare" with the idea that "any expense is worthwhile if it saves just one life"? Good to see we are beyond that logic.
