The Gulf Coast Cooperation region has seen rapid growth over the past 30 years. The State of Qatar is one such country that has been building their infrastructure and has required the use of migrant laborers to build physical structures within Qatar. Through a Sequential Explanatory Mixed-Method analysis of 1 year of Patient Care Reports (PCR) from the Hamad Medical Corporation Ambulance Service (HMCAS) in Qatar, the study looked at provisional diagnoses and factors considered for specific ambulance transport triggers amongst the unskilled/low-level migrant workers. Potential causal factors for the rising use of emergency services for non-emergency medical issues was the focus of this exploration. The study identified common themes, as well as conditions that prompt the migrant worker to utilize pre-hospital emergency services. The process was accomplished through a review of PCRs from the Ambulance Service, and thematic analysis using triangulation. Recommendations toward improving service and cost effectiveness- for the health care system in Qatar were derived.
