PACT EMS’s beginnings started in the fall of 2013. Right away, they knew that keeping in contact with the public and having a central location for folks to find out information about their services was key. In January of 2014, their site was launched around the same time they were licensed as an EMS agency and officially opened for business.
Before we began working on the PACT EMS website, we designed a logo that captured their ethos and vinyl schemes that would make their fleet of ambulances stand out from the rest of the crowd. With print ready graphics, they were able to take them a local vinyl shop to get their ambulances covered. After PACT EMS was satisfied with the look of their ambulances, we designed business cards that stood out like their ambulances and carried that same continuity through all phases of contact with the community.
Their website started with one of our “ready to roll” themes built on the Genesis Framework. This was a perfect start for them as it allowed them to get a site up and running quickly while being able to keep cash where they needed it. In addition to getting their site launched, we designed their logo and set their organization up with enterprise class web hosting, email services and cloud storage that kept their data secure and compliant with state and federal regulations regarding patient privacy (i.e. HIPAA).
Here at Northwest Tech & Design, we enjoy helping our clients solve problems in new and innovative ways. In early 2015, we developed a plugin for their site that leveraged the awesome power of WordPress. This plugin allows the PACT EMS website to function as a company intranet where employees can continue their education in the healthcare profession. They have begun rolling out classes that allow their personnel to learn wherever they are! Given the unique geography of their location and having employees spread out, it reduces the need for commuting and enables them to continually improve. In addition to using this educational platform within their own company, they will be able to use it to train others in other agencies and states to build a better and safer community for us all.
