SiteVision To Create Custom Mobile Application For Western Virginia EMS Council

WVEMS_logoRoanoke, VA June 8, 2013:  The Western Virginia Emergency Medical Services Council (WVEMS) has implemented a strategy to make EMS Protocols readily available to all EMS personnel via a mobile application for iOS and Android platforms.  SiteVision, Inc. will create the mobile application.

The new application means that personnel in the field will have the emergency manual of protocols and procedures instantly available on their mobile devices whenever and wherever required.  The protocols give specific procedures for emergency situations based on a clickable comprehensive decision tree in a PDF format.   The protocols and procedures range from initial patient care evaluation to exacting responses for diverse airway, cardiac, injury, environmental, OB-GYN and other emergency situations. The manual also includes an updated medication reference.

wvems_mobile2SiteVision’s role is to create the Mobile application and updates, and to provide application documentation, quality assurance, project administration, testing and deployment to the appropriate platforms. As a major advantage, users will be able to easily download the application from the iOS or Android App stores.  Then, as protocols or procedures change and the application is updated, EMS personnel will receive automatic push notification of updates as they occur for immediate downloading.

WVEMS is a regional council under the auspices of the Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services.  The combined councils are dedicated to facilitating regional cooperation, planning and the implementation of an integrated Emergency Medical Services system throughout Virginia.  The Council is also involved in performance improvement, continuing education and all pertinent EMS related events.

winblueMicrosoft Rejiggers Windows:

In response to a generally luke-warm reception of Win 8, and IT’s lack of enthusiasm for abandoning the very stable interface of Win7 – Voila, enter stage-left, Win 8.1.  Available as a free upgrade later this year, there are a slew of new features, but what’s one biggie?  The Start Button resurfaces!  According to several sources it’s back in its familiar place and always visible, though the menu trees are gone.  Will it look the same?  Maybe, Maybe not.  Some think it will resemble the stylized windows we show here.
For many, who are disenchanted with Microsoft’s tone-deaf approach to Win 8, the new upgrade won’t be enough.  For others, well, maybe.  According to Forrester, Win 8 in current iterations won’t gain enough traction to become a standard.  IT is particularly adverse to this upgrade.  Interestingly, though, again, according to Forrester, users have warmed up to the new version.  Here are several links to recent articles:  Engadget, Forrester, and The Verge.


Who’s Peeking At Your Skype Chats & Calls?

Oops, your private Skype calls and chats may not be so private after all.  It seems that not only is Skype (Microsoft) scanning messages for security reasons, but it is also scanning “https urls,” which are supposed to be private. Most of us reasonably expect that this type of messaging is private, but perhaps not.  It’s also unclear what Microsoft does with that data.  . Just what Microsoft needed, eh, especially since they have pounded Google for privacy infringement in a long-running “scroogled” campaign. Here’s this interesting perspective from Infoworld
