Dispatch Log and Tracking

To ensure the safety of field staff, and to best manage those to be dispatched, NorthStar Triage utilizes a Dispatch Log for tracking important contact points like: when staff was dispatched, and when staff returns. In addition, NorthStar Triage records the reason for dispatch. This information allows us to provide feedback that may help identify opportunities for education.
