Business Environment Challenges
EmergyCare, one of the largest nonprofit EMS providers in Northwestern Pennsylvania, provides emergency medical technician (EMT) and paramedic training courses throughout the Northwestern Region of Pennsylvania. Their headquarters is located in Erie, PA and their service area spans over 7 counties and 2,100 square miles with approximately 300 providers.
Because state regulations mandate that students taking these courses must attend live training, students in areas far away from the headquarters training location typically needed to travel several hours to get to a location for the training course. EmergyCare has two satellite locations in Warren and Meadville, PA and they were very interested in
putting together a distance learning platform.
“I absolutely love the touchscreen aspect of the device. Going from a dry erase board in a classroom and a desktop computer connected to a projector, with no interoperability or interactivity to a Windows collaboration display where everything will get done in one shot is incredible for us.”
