Interest in mobile computing applications has been increasing over the past few years. The Healthcare sector has begun recognizing the potential for providing at “point-of-care” access to applications through mobile devices. This paper explores the impact of mobile computing in the evaluation of the performance of an Emergency Medical Services organization in Australia. The paper concludes that the use of a mobile system enables an emergency service organization to speed up data capture and more efficiently provide data that can be used to the advantage of paramedics and the organization. It also has the potential to enable the organization to more effectively manage various aspects of the organization.
