Mission Critical Operations with Mobile – LifeFlight Success Story

Learn how LifeFlight utilizes a mobile app to ensure that critical information is captured and accessible during mission critical rescue flights.

  • Overview of challenges and how a mobile app has helped to improve missions.
  • How offline and real time management of data is utilized.
  • Benefits of a Jigx mobile app.

In the fewer than six months since its launch, LifeFlight’s new mission system has processed more than 2000 missions. For LifeFlight crew, it used to take half an hour to finalize each mission’s information across various systems. With the Jigx mobile app, it can take as little as a minute after returning back to base.

LifeFlight Australia is a world leader in aeromedical care, with a core purpose to save lives and serve the community. The organization delivers on its purpose every single day, through the provision of a seamlessly coordinated suite of aviation and medical capabilities.

Every rescue flight is critical. The systems that support aeromedical crews are the definition of “mission-critical”. When LifeFlight needed an app to manage their missions, they turned to Jigx. The result – a fit-for-purpose mobile application that links LifeFlight’s assets and crews with its coordination centre.

Offline Capabilities Are Mission Critical

A critical need in managing operational missions is the ability of the app to work seamlessly whether online or offline. Pilots need to focus on the mission. The Jigx app manages the capture and review of mission information regardless of whether the iPad is offline or online. As soon as a connection is established the app seamlessly synchronizes data between the app and the coordination centre’s operational systems.

Real-time Management

Using the app, each of LifeFlight’s missions now follow a defined process including briefing, risk assessment, flight logging, and mission debrief. Each step is managed by the iPad app and can be performed real-time as part of the mission, which saves the crew valuable time.

Elevated Safety, Efficiency, and Readiness

LifeFlight worked with automation experts, rapidMATION, to deliver a mobile app that can streamline information flow and allow pilots and crew to focus on their missions. When looking for the right mobile solution, they turned to Jigx, a mobile app platform that allowed LifeFlight to have a mobile experience that matched their needs without large development overhead.
