Summary of "Completeness in the recording of vital signs in ambulances increases over time."

In 2006, the North Denmark Region implemented the electronic prehospital patient medical record (PPR), amPHI, in the region's prehospital emergency medical service. In 2015, a new nationwide version was implemented. Our aim was to investigate the completeness and correctness of registrations of vital sign data in the PPR after the initial introduction and after the implementation of the new PPR version.
