little help tackling difficult or unusually complex problems.
We are always happy to discuss consulting on any issue you need addressed. Initial consultation is always free, no obligation, and confidential.
Properly auditing EMS run reports is a time consuming and difficult
task. It also is an essential first step in the quality improvement
cycle. In order to determine how well an agency and its field personnel
it is necessary to conduct a detailed and thorough analysis of the
patient care that has been provided.
Girard & Associates provides auditing services for EMS agencies, EMS medical directors, municipal managers, and others who are interested in obtaining an unbiased opinion of an EMS organizations patient care performance.
The Girard & Associates Performance Rating © is a numeric value that allows us to score each providers performance and to score the performance of your agency against other similar sized agencies. Not only can we tell you how well you are doing but we can tell you exactly what you need to do to improve. Your QA department can then go to work using accurate, timely data that can be measured and improved upon.
