SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2013) - New software from Forté Holdings, Inc., called iPCR, (, takes electronic patient-care reporting to new levels of efficiency and portability, says company president Anthony Schwartz.

"Electronic patient-care reporting is progressing even as many fire stations and ambulance companies across the country are still mired in paper reporting," Schwartz says. "The newest technology, iPCR, is much lighter than the Toughbooks laptops some stations now use. iPCR offers users better response time; quicker, automated client information; and it's very user-friendly."

With economically stressed cities and counties trimming budgets for emergency medical services, iPCR also offers considerable savings because it relies on less expensive iPads.

The newest generation of Electronic Patient Care Reporting technology can interface with both Macs and PCs. Rescue teams can customize iPCR from a wide array of features to suit the needs of an organization. Additionally, iPCR offers integrations for every step in the patient care process, Schwartz says.

The software significantly streamlines the process of creating and transmitting accurate reports, including patient histories and real-time data from monitoring devices.

iPCR has already received much praise, including from Lockey Beasley, education coordinator for the Hopkinsville, Ky., fire department and the EMS Director for Todd County.

"We literally loaded the iPCR on the iPad and one of the crews made a run with it right then and finished the patient care report," Beasley says. "You usually have a complainer in every bunch, but the crews accepted the change very well and without a hitch. Crews don't miss a beat and, ultimately, are a step or two quicker."
