American Medical Response chooses Zipit Wireless

Zipit Wireless, a pioneer in innovative M2M solutions and two-way paging for critical messaging environments today announced that American Medical Response (AMR), the nation’s leading ambulance provider, will incorporate Zipit’s Enterprise Critical Messaging Solution into AMR’s Emergency Medical Services operations.

Once implementation is complete, the Zipit solution, which operates on Verizon nationwide 3G network, will provide AMR’s emergency field operations with improved dispatcher efficiency and seamless integration with their existing CAD-dispatching systems while meeting the strict HIPAA technical requirements for maintaining the security of protected health information (PHI).

Zipit Wireless, through their Zipit Now device and Zipit Confirm mobile application for iOS and Android based devices, offers fast and reliable two-way enterprise critical messaging and secure texting solutions for environments long dependent on out-of-date and unsecure one-way pagers.

Zipit’s two-way paging feature provides quick “message acknowledged” confirmations between emergency dispatchers and field personnel, saving valuable time and reducing unneeded radio traffic. Dispatchers are more time-efficient using Zipit, allowing them to provide emergency response personnel with more detailed and informative emergency messaging, while handling an increased volume of emergency situations.

“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Zipit Wireless to enhance our emergency field communications with their industry leading critical messaging solution”, said Tom Landers, enterprise telecom manager, AMR’s parent company, Envision Healthcare.

“The Zipit solution will improve our ability to serve our patients and our partners faster and more efficiently, while helping to ensure that AMR is fully compliant with HIPAA regulations when communicating private health information,” added Landers.

“We are honored that an industry leader like AMR has placed such confidence in Zipit Wireless to help enhance their 911 and transport emergency medical services communications,” said Frank Greer, CEO, Zipit.

“This is an exciting time for Zipit, as well as for our customers who are benefiting from our fast and dependable critical messaging solution.  We look forward to being part of the ongoing success of AMR as they continue to provide an advanced level of emergency services to their customers and partners.”

Mike Ross, director of healthcare mobility solutions for Verizon Enterprise Solutions said, “By providing the access for the Zipit Wireless Enterprise Critical Messaging Solution to deliver a solution to AMR that can reduce emergency response times, increase reliability and security during critical emergency situations, the ultimate benefactor is the patient.”

Zipit’s critical communications and secure messaging solution is being rapidly adopted nationwide where fast, reliable, confidential two-way messaging is important to many customers in the healthcare, hospitality and manufacturing industries.
