Good afternoon,

The office of EMS wants to thank you for all that you are doing for EMS in Alabama and working with our system patients so efficiently. We are also reaching out for your help in communicating with our individual providers in regards to calculating and preparing an EMSA score for all CVA/Possible CVA patients entered into the Stroke System to make this even better. We are seeing inaccurate, false, or inconclusive data as we review these incidents which can be contributed back to the individual providers not having an EMSA score prepared at the time of call to the ATCC. Please make sure that your personnel understand and are aware that the communicator from ATCC will be asking for a score and the individual provider calling should be prepared to give an accurate score.

You help and assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated and again thank you for all you do everyday!
