The DriveCam Difference

MedStar Mobile Healthcare knows that responding to an emergency in less than nine minutes means a better chance of saving a life. But ambulance driving, which often entails speeding, causes significant safety risks—both to the drivers and the patients they’re carrying when collisions occur, and to the organization which must pay steep, collision-related costs. 

MedStar chose to deploy the DriveCam® safety program along with the Lytx Speed Management program enhancement to proactively identify and address risky driving behaviors in its fleet. Using the program’s patented, video-based technology and analytics together with targeted driver coaching helped drivers to clearly see where they could improve and become safer.

Prior to working with Lytx, MedStar had multiple major collisions that resulted in costs of about $75,000. After implementing the DriveCam program, MedStar has been able to reduce major driving incidents, including collisions, by half. Because of this, the company has reduced its bent metal costs by 80%, down to just $14,000.

In addition, MedStar’s insurance company has recognized its very proactive approach to driver safety. As a result, MedStar has been able to reduce its insurance experience modifier, which has translated to lower overhead costs and, ultimately, lower costs for patients.

With higher levels of safety and cost-savings, MedStar can better focus on its mission: to serve patients, make patients better, and provide a service that’s valuable to the communities it serves.
