2012 is in the books!
By Jennifer Cook
 
Ever wonder what it takes to keep the POLST Registry running smoothly? Take a look at our 2012 Annual Report.
 
Here are a few highlights:
  • The Emergency Communications Center Registry Hotline received 972 calls.
  • EMS accounted for 275 (28.3 percent) of the calls.
  • We received and processed 45,532 POLST forms.
  • On average, it took 1.58 calendar days (median 1.43) to enter a form’s information into the Registry after receiving it. We prepared and mailed 29,517 registrant packets.
  • The Registry Business Office fielded 2,100 calls. A new OPR logo, motto, mission statement and website were developed.
All this in addition to many on-site trainings!
