Here are MedStar’s Response Volume, Patient Destination Report and 12L EKG Distribution Summary.
Thankfully, August’s response volume was not as crazy as July, but still up 20.1% from August 2020 and 1.3% from August 2021.
Transport ratio (the % of patients taken to the ER after a 911 call) continues the downward trend, likely due to several of the programs we have in place to reduce preventable ER visits.
Interestingly, the number and % of patients who are experiencing cardiac events in the out-of-hospital setting, requiring an EKG transmission to the hospital, continues a downward trend, reaching the lowest level in 26 months.
