Each year, ZOLL recognizes EMS professionals who strive to use data solutions to improve patient, financial and operational outcomes. These individuals save their organization money, time and resources, which enable their teams to save more lives within their communities.
“Our mission with this program is to acknowledge deserving individuals who derive insights from the data they collect to make life-saving decisions,” said Alex Moghadam, President of ZOLL Data Management. “No matter how many dashboards you generate, graphs you chart, or reports you see, patient outcomes and business performance won’t improve if you’re not making smart decisions based on that data.”
This year, we have an awesome group of winners. Please join us in congratulating these individuals for their phenomenal commitment to EMS. In the upcoming days and weeks, look for individual blog posts highlighting their individual achievements.
