Grant Number
Project Overview
The recent report of the Institute of Medicine on emergency medical services for children (EMSC) says that understanding and overcoming the EMS for Children information gap requires compiling data on the particular role that individual system components play in emergency care. Goals: (1) analyze child- and adolescent-specific emergency department survey results of 3 years of the National Center for Health Statistics; and (2) create, test, and evaluate a prototype natural-language interface to an existing EMS run report data system in order to address the EMS database access problem.
