Performance Measures

About

The Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program performance measures are a set of standards that were developed to measure long-term progress at both state and national levels of the EMSC program in key areas of pediatric emergency care.

The measures were developed in accordance with the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA), a results-oriented approach that requires federal agencies to establish performance measures that guide decisions and monitor program success.

The performance measures represent a systematic, uniform process of focusing and measuring program activities and promoting the permanence of EMSC programs at the state level.
