This page contains tools related to creating and understanding evidence-based performance measures.
EMS performance measures are often associated with patient encounters that are either time-sensitive, treatment- sensitive, or both. This page identifies NEMSIS (and non-NEMSIS) variables may be used to build evidence-based performance assessments for sentinel patient conditions. The patient conditions addressed are acute myocardial infarction (AMI), ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), acute stroke, and severe trauma. It is our belief that utilization of these lists of data variables will promote the development and standardization of performance measurement, leading to enhanced benchmarking and sharing of best practices.
