Collecting Good Data
Wonder where all that information collected in thousands of EMS patient care reports every day ends up? People across the country analyze it—from your local EMS service and regional planners to State and Federal health officials and medical researchers. And the more accurate this data is, the more it can be used to improve patient care, help fight public health emergencies and make EMS safer for providers and patients.
