Under a contract with the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security
(DHS), DataTech911 conducted a
study in which more than 100 EMS
agencies were interviewed and surveyed. Survey results revealed the
>> The need to categorize KPIs (e.g.,
financial performance, response
improvement, patient outcomes,
and workforce management);
>>The need for agencies to select
and customize KPIs relevant to their organization; and
>>The need for demographic stratification (i.e., wilderness, rural, suburban or urban). Based on the area covered by an agency, different
KPI thresholds should be defined for each category.
During the interview and survey, process the following challenges
and process issues were reported:
>>Data is rarely available at the correct time and in the right form
>>Data collecting processes affect the results (e.g., time on scene is
based on arrival on scene or patient contact);
>>Scheduled calls left in the dispatch queue for days can invalidate
emergency response time information. If a scheduled call is left
in the dispatcher’s queue, it can grossly affect the average dispatch time to the point where the measure has no meaning for
>>Mixing incident data for special
events (i.e., units staged on-site) with
emergency 9-1-1 calls can affect
analysis. When calculating KPIs
such as unit hour utilization, cost
per call, or response times, mixing
special events calls with emergency
calls can skew the results; and
>>Most organizations don’t own all
their data stores (e.g., local EMS
organizations rely on county-owned
computer-aided dispatch for incident information).
Other roadblocks that agencies
frequently encounter include:
>>Date and time stamps: Are they accurate?
>>Software mapping issues: Are different pieces of software “
speaking” to each other?
>>Element completion: Are important stages in the process being
>>Null/unknown values in tracking system: Are all elements of
necessary data being collected? How are Null/unknown values
accounted for in the overall metrics?
