A Cloud-Based Revolution:

Successful Implementation of Logis IDS at Buchanan County EMS


Buchanan County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a vital healthcare provider serving thousands annually. To meet the escalating demands of emergency medical service provision, Buchanan County EMS sought a solution to streamline their operations, increase real-time data accessibility, and enhance resource management. They turned to the cloud-based Logis IDS (Intelligent Decision Support). This case study explores how the implementation of Logis IDS, hosted entirely on Logis Cloud, has dramatically improved the operational efficiency at Buchanan County EMS.

Pre-Implementation Challenges

Buchanan County EMS faced several challenges, including inefficient dispatch systems, difficulties in resource allocation, limited real-time data tracking, and integration issues with their electronic Patient Care Reports (ePCR) system.

Implementation of Logis IDS

In late 2022, Buchanan County EMS partnered with Logis Solutions, a market-leading provider of emergency management software solutions, to implement Logis IDS. The software was configured on the Logis Cloud, eliminating the need for an on-premise setup. The implementation process involved staff training and seamless system integration. The dedicated implementation teams from both Buchanan County EMS and Logis Solutions ensured a smooth transition and minimized the effort required to adapt to the innovative cloud-based system.

Michael Bangerter, IT Coordinator at Buchanan County EMS, praised the implementation process, stating, “We were looking for a solution that would not only address our present challenges but also be future-proof. The Logis IDS team was instrumental in helping us transition to the cloud-based system smoothly. We had initial concerns about replacing a vital part of our operations support, but implementing Logis IDS proved to be swift and required minimal time and effort from our organization. Training requirements were also minimal.”

Post-Implementation Results

  1. Improved Response Times: Through efficient automated dispatching logic provided by Logis IDS, Buchanan County EMS experienced a significant reduction in response times, resulting in improved patient outcomes.
  2. Enhanced Resource Allocation: Real-time data access via the cloud allowed Buchanan County EMS to optimize resource allocation and improve patient care.
  3. Seamless Integration with ePCR system: Logis IDS seamlessly integrated with the ePCR system, enabling efficient capture and sharing of patient information, reducing errors, and saving valuable time.
  4. Scalability and Flexibility: Operating in the cloud, Logis IDS provided scalability, allowing Buchanan County EMS to easily adjust their operations based on demand. The flexibility of the cloud-based system enhanced adaptability and resilience in their operations.
  5. Cost Savings: The absence of on-premise setup reduced costs related to hardware, maintenance, and IT staff, resulting in significant cost savings.

Reflecting on the impact of Logis IDS, Bangerter remarked, “The introduction of Logis IDS has revolutionized how we operate. We’re more efficient, more agile, and most importantly, we’re delivering better patient care.”


The cloud-based Logis IDS implementation at Buchanan County EMS has revolutionized their emergency service operations. This has led to substantial enhancements in response times, resource allocation, and real-time data tracking. Additionally, the flexibility and scalability offered by the Logis Cloud have allowed Buchanan County EMS to quickly adapt to changing demands and improve overall patient care.

This case study serves as an example of the transformative power of cloud-based technology in emergency medical services and offers valuable insights for other healthcare organizations considering a similar transition.
