Idaho Time Sensitive Emergency System

The Idaho Time Sensitive Emergency System was created to address the top three preventable causes of death: trauma, stroke, and heart attacks (a.k.a. STEMI). This is a collaborative approach from all stakeholders throughout the state including hospitals, EMS agencies, public health districts, and the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare.

About TSE

The Idaho Time Sensitive Emergency (TSE) System is molded on evidence-based care that addresses public education and prevention, 911 access, response coordination, pre-hospital response, transport, hospital emergency/acute care, rehabilitation, and quality improvement. The TSE program creates a seamless transition between each level of care and integrates existing community resources to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.
