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.
The 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.
There is a current vacancy for a governor appointed seat under Idaho Statute 56-1027 (2)(d):
"One (1) representative from an EMS agency licensed by the department that serves a primarily urban response area;"
- Please send nominations along with CV/resume and Governor Appointed Application to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 13th. Please contact the TSE Program staff at 208-334-4000, if you have any questions or concerns.
