AN EVALUATION METHODOLOGY FOR EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES (EMS) SYSTEMS

The object of the program was to study various methods for developing EMS data on which governmental decision-making might be based. After the study, one method was chosen and developed into a complete EMS assessment model. Work started with a baseline questionnaire developed under NATO. This was refined, expanded, and field tested in a number of states with the intention that, under NATO, it might become an international standard for EMS assessment. Appropriate effectiveness measures are described and a weighting system in which mathematical totals can be derived is suggested.
