London   Ambulance   Service   -   Computer   Aided   Dispatch   (LAS-CAD)   project   was  designed to automate many of the human-intensive processes of manual dispatch systems  associated with ambulance services in the UK.  The LASCAD system was built as an  event-based   system   using   a  rule-based   approach   in   interaction   with   a  geographical  information system (GIS) running under Microsoft Windows. The GIS communicated  with Datatrak's automatic vehicle tracking system. The system ran on a series of network  PCs  and file  severs supplied   by Apricot.     The  major  rationale  expressed  for  such  computerization was that a number of problems existed with the manual CAD system.  The   basic   functionality   of   the   intended   LAS-CAD   system   was   as   follows:   British  Telecom (BT) operators would route all 999 calls concerning medical emergencies as a  matter of routine to LAS headquarters. 18 HQ 'receivers' were then expected to record on  the   system   the   name,   telephone   number   and   address   of   the   caller,   and   the   name,  destination address and brief details of the patient. This information would then be

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
