We continue out series of podcasts focused on “Peeling Back the Layers of the Cost Data Collection Instrument” by taking a look at Section 6, the Service Mix Section. What percentage of your ground ambulance responses are emergency versus non-emergency? What is an ALS Level 2 versus an ALS Level 1? Does your service ever transport critically ill or injured patients from one facility to another with additional higher-trained personnel onboard the ambulance? These questions and more will be critical to determining the answers for this section. We explain in detail in this edition of the QMC EMS|Board & Collar.
