New Feature Highlight: Calculate Geocoding Mileage

In both Gold and Legacy emsCharts, we've added the ability to calculate distance via the Google API when selecting a referring and receiving geocoded hospital.

Now, users in both Legacy emsCharts and Gold, whose services subscribe to the Geocoding module, can Calculate mileage and enter it directly into the Mileage section of Page 1.

"...providers and suppliers are responsible for ensuring that they have the necessary equipment to measure fractional mileage to the tenth of a mile, and ensuring that onboard vehicle gauges measuring trip mileage are in working order... Tools that may be used to measure trip mileage include, but are not limited to: Digital or analog odometers, trip odometers, GPS navigation, onboard trip computers or navigation systems." - Fed. Reg. 228 at p. 73480

Clicking on the "Calculate GEOcoding Mileage" button invokes the option to select Fastest Route or Shortest Route via Google Maps.

If you click on the "Route" link, it displays the mapped route via Google Maps.

Clicking "Select" (left image) enters the mileage into the "Loaded" miles field
