Welcome to the Idaho Time Sensitive Emergency System website.   The Idaho Time Sensitive System was created to address the top three preventable causes of death in Idaho; Trauma, Stroke, and heart attacks.  This is a collaborative approach from all stakeholders throughout the state including but not limited to hospitals, EMS agencies, public health districts, and Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

The Idaho TSE system is modeled on evidence-based care, that addresses public education and prevention, 911 access, response coordination, pre-hospital response, transport, hospital emergency/acute care, rehabilitation and quality improvement. The TSE program creates a seamless transition between each level of care and integrates existing community resources to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. The Idaho TSE motto;  

"Get the right patient, to the right place, at the right time."
