Paramedic Chiefs of Canada – 15th COVID-19 Webinar – EMS Performance in Times of COVID-19: Montreal’s Experience – August 20th | Recording and HandoutJenny Abercrombie
Montreal was one of the regions hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada. As the situation progressed, Urgences-santé had to adapt and innovate in order to face this new reality. With the shut down of several links in the prehospital survival chain, the paramedics were left alone to face this invisible enemy.
Thanks to its many monitoring tools, Urgences-santé’s management was able to quickly take advantage of the situation in order to measure, deploy and validate several actions in order to remain proactive and keep its employees and patients safe and healthy.
This presentation focused on the various monitoring strategies and mechanisms used by Urgences-santé to measure its corporate, clinical, and operational performance during the pandemic.
