AIMHI benchmarking reports perform a fundamental service to EMS leaders and local policy makers by demonstrating the clinical, operational, and economic outcomes of High Performance/High Value EMS (HPHVEMS), systems. These reports also demonstrate the innovation and system design changes that occur in these systems to meet the current challenges in EMS delivery and sustainability.
AIMHI’s goal in releasing this information is to ensure the progress and growth of the HPHVEMS model and expand the reputation and efficiency of EMS nationally and internationally.
AIMHI will be releasing quarterly reports on the member EMS systems that will highlight the demographic, clinical, operational, and financial outcome statistics of the nation’s highest performing EMS systems. The data contained in these reports will demonstrates excellent clinical outcomes and proficiency, outstanding operational effectiveness, and exceptional financial efficiency.
This is the report you want to read if you want to know how your urban or suburban EMS system compares to these systems on key measures such as response times, cardiac arrest survival, cost per unit hour, cost and revenue per transport, and reliance on local tax subsidy.
Data contained in this quarter’s report includes:
- System delivery changes that have occurred in member service areas
- Medical First Responder (MFR) utilization
- Light and siren use by member agencies
- Accreditations by agency
- Service area information (population, size, response and transport volume)
- Response time goals and performance
Additional benchmarking reports will be released quarterly, to keep the information current, relevant and digestible.
