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.

Is ‘SSM’ Still a ‘Bad Idea’?
I refuse to work for a system that does SSM. I did ride time in one of these county systems, and it was exhausting. I love running calls. I would like to work in a busier system but not at the cost of getting stuck in a truck for hours on end. I've done this…

Is ‘SSM’ Still a ‘Bad Idea’?
When I worked in a system that implemented the SSM plan it shaved off about 1 minute of response time. This system had 3 units available. Medics were pressured by upper mgmnt of a 20min for medical and 10min for trauma(the same as in the EMT books). Some medics couldn't handle the pressure and were…

Static v. Dynamic: A Continuum of Cost
There are pros and cons with each model but the bottom line comes down to optimizing your EMS system and delivering rapid care within a cost efficient model. I have always worked in a drama series called "housewives of a static system" as well as in a nationally recognized dynamic system and I can honestly…
