SafetyPAD customer-partners have experienced dramatic and positive impacts on documentation completeness, process management, and billable reports, with many experiencing improvements in those areas by multiples of 2 - 3 x!

SafetyPAD believes that it differentiates itself in the ePCR industry by focusing on being a true solution provider to each partner agency, not by simply providing a shrink-wrap ePCR system. We take tremendous pride in working closely with each agency to understand its unique requirements to ensure that the system is a true solution both during initial deployment as well as on an ongoing basis. SafetyPAD does not have hundreds of sites to manage – continually supporting this quantity of site’s unique requirements and needs would be challenging for any company. Instead, SafetyPAD’s approach has been to work as an integral partner and continually improve the solution based on feedback.
