ImageTrend Collaborate™ Short Report: Prehospital Incidents in the Geriatric Population from January 2019 to June 2022Volume 2: Issue 1 Download the Report
IMAGETREND COLLABORATE SHORT REPORT
Past studies have shown geriatric adults account for approximately 40% of all EMS responses.²-³ Understanding this aging population and their unique needs for EMS can help strengthen training, quality of care, resource allocation, and alternative healthcare options to ultimately improve patient quality of life.
This Collaborate report is a large sample of data from across the nation where incidents in the geriatric population are seen in the prehospital setting. This report looks at variables in these incidents across incident locations, urbanicity, regions, dispatch reasons, patient dispositions, gender, race and social determinants from 2019 to 2022. The goal is to add valuable data to not only the prehospital industry but also bridge the gap with public health programs and initiatives.
