EMS Round Table

STEMI Task Force

Starting in October of 2013, CIEMSD coordinated a gathering of the key players in STEMI care for the Des Moines metro area. Members from all of the health systems in Des Moines met together with EMS Directors for the goal of improving patient outcomes for our STEMI patients. Two big pieces of this improvement revolves around EMS notification of the receiving hospital, and feedback provided to EMS agencies regarding patient outcomes.

Starting in April 2019, stroke was added as another time critical diagnosis with the goal of promoting transparency, education and improving time to treatment for stroke patients in the metro area.

Meetings are held at Polk County EMA on the third Thursday of the even months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec) month from 8:00 – 9:00 AM. All are welcome to attend – please RSVP to committee chair Frank Prowant at FProwant@AnkenyIowa.gov if you plan to attend so we will be sure to have space.
