State-owned emergency medical operator FinnHEMS, has opted for Rusada’s ENVISION software to manage its airworthiness and maintenance activities.
FinnHEMS operates Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) flights for hospital districts from its seven bases across Finland. They utilise a fleet of 9 helicopters, Airbus H135s and H145s, primarily for the deployment of emergency specialists to incidents, rather than the transportation of patients. As such, their callout rate is typically higher and more frequent than standard air ambulance services.
With this high volume of flights and need for constant aircraft availability, FinnHEMS was seeking a greater level of confidence in their operational data and determined that ENVISION met all the requirements for the job.
“We are looking forward to relying on ENVISION to give us more certainty around our operations, as well as increased visibility on the readiness of our fleet.” says Tony Ellonen, Continuing Airworthiness Manager at FinnHEMS. “A key desire was to enable our maintenance teams to effectively plan for upcoming events. With ENVISION, vital information will be readily available to our main base and outlying deployment stations so that our helicopters can be strategically maintained, to be available at a moment’s notice.”
With Rusada’s help, FinnHEMS will now begin the process of consolidating their current systems into ENVISION, using its airworthiness and maintenance modules to manage their activities going forward. The solution will be accessible via the cloud from any of their operating locations, and its live dashboards will ensure key information is available and consistent company wide. This will significantly reduce user’s workloads and avoid any potential human factors conflicts.
Julian Stourton, CEO at Rusada comments “Visibility and control are two words we are hearing a lot lately. Operators are finding it hard to manage complex operations with their data and processes spread across multiple different systems.”
“ENVISION has been designed specifically to eliminate this problem, but nevertheless it is always gratifying when dynamic, forward thinking companies such as FinnHEMS select us to help out. In the coming months we will go above and beyond to deliver the oversight and control they seek.”
