EMS Performance Improvement Guide
The intention of this manual is to serve as a resource for individuals on the front lines striving to improve the care they provide to EMS patients at their time of greatest need. This guidance document was developed through a workgroup established at the Trauma and EMS Performance Improvement (TEPI) standing committee.
Prehospital Performance Improvement Tools
First responders and transporters have a significant influence on the outcome of a patient health. These tools have been developed by our Trauma and EMS Performance Improvement (TEPI) committee to improve the level of care that patients receive in the field. Our quality assurance reports are based upon these tools.
- Cardiac Arrest
- Major Trauma
- Arizona Field Triage Decision Scheme Pocket Version
- ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction
In the prehospital setting, the operational success of your Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agency can provide a financial foundation for training, equipment and quality personnel that may lead to significant positive outcomes for patients. With your participation, we seek to encourage the development of operational awareness and progression among Arizona EMS agencies, which could lead to sustainable EMS business practices in addition to improving patient outcomes.
