The ETA Tracking feature of the e-Bridge app allows hospitals to view the location and ETA of inbound ambulances in real time. This location data is only available when the ambulance user creates an alert with the Tracking feature enabled and is automatically disabled when the ambulance arrives at the hospital. And the GPS Location feature allows sent messages to be geotagged with the user’s current location when enabled.
