Metropolitan Ambulance Service – Victoria


Victoria’s Metropolitan Ambulance Service use Panasonic Toughbooks for mobile patient care.

Victoria’s Metropolitan Ambulance Service (MAS) has issued its paramedic teams with fully ruggedised Panasonic CF-18 Toughbook laptops for use across its entire fleet of 160 ambulances. Toughbooks are already being used by over 400 paramedics  across more than 40 paramedic teams. By the end of 2006, more than 200 Toughbooks will have been rolled out to 1000 paramedics  across around 100 teams.

The Toughbooks are used primarily in tablet PC form and run a software program called VACIS (Victorian Ambulance Clinical Information System), designed and developed by MAS to assist paramedics by simplifying the process of capturing patient data for further analysis and reporting. The Toughbooks also hold information to assist paramedics whilst they work including clinical practice guidelines, animated work instructions, training materials and the eMIMS electronic drug database.
