Emergency Medical Services
Body Camera video has been used successfully to disprove accusations such as assault, rude behavior, theft, lost items, and treatment/therapy issues. As such, the body-worn camera have proven to be a nearly definitive tool for dispute resolution.
In addition, body-worn cameras have provided a valuable feedback system for improving care. The goal of any EMS agency should be to provide the best patient care possible. EMS is a data-driven industry. Everything we document should be used to improve patient care, patient outcomes and emergency medical services. By implementing body cameras, we discovered a treasure trove of information that assists us in building a better service.
Prior to body-worn cameras, we relied on electronic or paper documentation to collect this data, knowing that it’s next to impossible for a paramedic or EMT to document an entire encounter. It is even more difficult to properly document bystander and family interaction.

Body-worn cameras can be a vital tool in your toolkit used to advance clinical excellence and training. Imagine an ER or OR team being able to view an incident via livestream to see what care is being administered and to prepare for an incoming patient. When timing is critical, the ability to view pre-hospital care can save valuable minutes or seconds.
