Aladtec for EMS puts scheduling tools in staff members' hands

Before using Aladtec, I spent a lot of time dealing with trade requests from members. Now they take care of their own trades. It's also very easy to check the schedule from anywhere. -- Deputy Chief Dale Dow, Fitch Rona (WI) Fire & EMS

Aladtec, a Wisconsin-based provider of cloud-based scheduling and workforce management software, will be among 250 vendors presenting products and services to professionals attending the EMS Today Conference and Exhibition, Feb. 20-22, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.

As of early February, more than 900 EMS agencies are using Aladtec to assure 24/7 staffing coverage, swiftly fill open shifts, record OT hours, and allow members to trade shifts and request time off. The program also includes a sophisticated form tool to speed up daily routines like rig- and med checks.

Aladtec has more than 140,000 active users among its 2,200 subscribers across the U.S and Canada. Members access the platform from any smartphone, tablet or desktop with internet connectivity.

“Before using Aladtec, I spent a lot of time dealing with trade requests from members. Now they take care of their own trades. It's also very easy to check the schedule from anywhere,” said Dale Dow, Deputy Chief with Fitch Rona Fire & EMS, which serves the Dane County (WI) communities of Fitchburg and Verona. “We'll never go back to paper scheduling."

This short video illustrates how River Falls (WI) Area Ambulance uses Aladtec's customizable forms to speed up daily rig- and medication checks.
Account executive Court Maumee, System Specialist Jeremy Rodewald, and Support Specialist Moriah Boldon will offer free demonstrations of the software and answer user questions about features, such as the newly released Extra Hours function.

The software enhancement provides members with an easy way to record unplanned shifts, holdovers, shift variances, shift adjustments, and unscheduled overtime after the fact. Once the shift has ended, a member enters the unscheduled time via smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, and the request is forwarded to a supervisor for approval. The additional hours are added to the schedule and can be documented as part of the regular reporting process.

The exhibit floor at EMS Today will be open for attendees from 3 to 6 pm, Wednesday, Feb. 20, 10 am to 5 pm, Thursday, Feb. 21, and from 10 am to 1 pm, Friday, Feb. 22.

The conference features more than 200 educational sessions to provide First Responders with continuing education from a large assembly of faculty and practitioners.

Among lecture topics: Cameras in Ambulances: What you should know before recording; Protecting our Crews Against Assault; Mental Health Needs for Members; Performance Anxiety and the First Responder; Motivational Interviewing for Community Paramedics; Cybersecurity: How to Protect your Agency; Fire-based EMS: A Tsunami is Coming; Medical Errors & Decision-Making Strategies; Active Shooter/Hostile Environment Preparedness; and Battling Fatigue and Sleep Deprivation in EMS. A complete list of sessions appears here.

Keynote for the three-day event will be provided by Ryan Jenkins -- author of the book, The Millennial Manual: The Complete How-To Guide to Manage, Develop, and Engage Millennials at Work.

Jenkins helps organizations gain clarity around Millennials and Generation Z so that leaders can effectively lead, engage, and sell in today’s multi-generational marketplace. Ryan is a partner at 21Mill.com, a micro-learning training platform dedicated to helping Millennials perform better at work.

Aladtec is currently used by a total of 56 customers in Virginia and 36 agencies in Maryland -- including Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad, Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Dept., and Morningside Volunteer Fire Dept.. Both agencies operate just a few miles from EMS Today conference venue.
