Alberta Health Services (AHS) Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is constantly working to improve the high quality care Albertans receive every day. Many different factors go into measuring the level of care and satisfaction provided by EMS.
AHS is publicly posting six EMS-specific performance measures in the form of a performance dashboard.
These measures reflect key areas within EMS that are important measurements of patient safety and care.
The measures will be used to guide work around improving the quality, safety and timeliness of ambulance service across the province.
The data will be updated quarterly and reviewed annually to ensure it continues to be realistic and challenging.
