Abstract

The application of a computer model to evaluate ambulance deployment configurations in an urban ambulance service is described. A planned expansion of the Boston Emergency Ambulance Service was accomplished using computer projections. The use of analytic models in the planning and implementation of an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system allows for greater understanding of the interactions between various performance measures, facilitating the effective and cost-efficient allocation of resources.
