NEMSIS EMS Performance Measures For STEMI, Stroke, And Out Of Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Faculty Members: Greg Mears, MD & Jane Brice, MD, MPH

Project Description: Funding for this project is provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) to the Department of Emergency Medicine, EMS Performance Improvement Center.  This project will begin December 1, 2009 and end September 30, 2010.  Using the National EMS Information System’s Version 3.0 dataset and definitions, this project will use an industry driven consensus process to identify, define, and develop a minimal set of EMS performance measures to better describe and evaluate the impact of EMS service delivery and patient care on the Systems of Care associated with STEMI, Stroke, and OHCA care.
