2018 Innovation Award Recipients

2018 Individual Innovation Award Recipient: 

Gary Heigel, RCC Emergency Medical Services Chair
Project: Innovative use of video

Heigel was recognized for his implementation of a computer application created by Interact Solutions that allows students and instructors to capture and process videos via a secure, web-based portal that can be accessed at any time from any computer or mobile device. Simulation exercises play a major role in preparing EMT and paramedic students for a wide range of real-life emergencies they will experience on the job. Heigel uses the video recording tool to help students see in a safe learning environment how they present themselves while providing patient care during simulated emergency responder exercises.
