Emergency Medical Dispatch - Objectives

Emergency Medical Dispatch constitutes the first link in the chain of survival and is the gatekeeper for Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

Aims of the first meetings have been the establishment of a common terminology for medical dispatch centers by defining or clarifying terminology within emergency medical dispatch including defining core/essential and optional data, the development of a key data set for dispatch centers for health monitoring and benchmarking and future research, and the definition of requirements for prioritization and handling.

Target group are pre-hospital EMS patients in order to improve pre-hospital care and maximize an efficient use of resources
