Prehospital Data Program

The Illinois EMS Systems Act (210 ILCS 50) and supporting administrative code provide for the collection of prehospital patient care report data by licensed emergency medical services transport vehicle providers, and the subsequent submission of these data to IDPH. Each record contains information about the incident (reason for call, scene location, outcome, etc), provider/unit/crewmember identifiers, unit utilization descriptors (e.g., times and locations), patient information (limited demographics, injury/illness characterization, assessment results), and treatment details (medications, procedures).
