EMS Performance: NEMSQA Quality Measures

Performance measures drive practice, protocols, spending, and behaviors across healthcare. The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA) is leading the charge in development, refinement and dissemination of quality and performance measures for EMS. Working with EMS organizations, stakeholders, partners from government and industry, NEMSQA updated the EMS Compass measures to ensure their evidence-basis and make them readily deployable across the EMS community to drive quality and improvement in patient care. This program will inform you about the work of NEMSQA, how the NEMSQA measures are being implemented already, and how you can employ NEMSQA measures to improve performance in your EMS service or region.

The EMS Sleep Health Study EMS Agency Research Study Flyer

Who? Daniel Patterson, PhD, NRP from the University of Pittsburgh Department of Emergency Medicine is leading a research study that seeks to examine the impact of a sleep health and fatigue education and training program tailored to Emergency Medical Services (EMS) clinicians. This research study has financial support from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO). The University of Pittsburgh has partnered with the NASEMSO as a sub-contractor for purposes of conducting this research study.

What? This research study is an experiment that will test the impact of a new sleep health and fatigue training education program. The program is designed to improve the individual EMS clinician’s sleep health and reduce work-related fatigue through education and training. The program will be administered entirely online (via the internet) and will be accessible to EMS clinicians located at the EMS agencies that agree to participate in this research study.

When? The study team will begin recruiting EMS agencies to participate in this study in late January 2020. Each agency will be asked to participate for a total of 24 weeks. Participation is voluntary.

How? Researchers will ask EMS agency administrators to help recruit individual EMS clinicians at their agency to participate in this research study. Participation will be completely voluntary and confidential. The study team will mostly use data collection tools available via the Internet. Some data collection will involve mobile phone text messages. The research study’s website will be secure and require a unique login (username and password) from each individual EMS clinician. Some EMS clinicians may be asked to wear a wrist actigraph to measure sleep and complete a reaction time test at the start and end of a few scheduled work shifts during the study period.

Who is Eligible? The study team is seeking participation from EMS agencies located in the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii). Criteria for eligibility include: [1] The EMS agency provides EMS services (including 911 response and transport). [2] The EMS agency provides ground-based EMS services 24-hours a day. Agencies limited to air-medical services only are not eligible. [3] The EMS agency employs between 50 and 300 EMS paid full-time and part-time clinicians/personnel. Agencies that use an all-volunteer staffing model are not eligible. [4] Agencies restrict their EMS clinicians to use their personal mobile phones/smartphones during shifts are not eligible. [5] Operations that provide both fire suppression and EMS 911 response and transport are eligible and encouraged to participate.

Remuneration: Those who qualify for the study and choose to participate will receive remuneration worth approximately $35 U.S. dollars. All individual participants will receive remuneration in the form of a gift card totaling approximately $35 in value. A $5 gift card will be distributed at the beginning, when the individual enrolls, every month the individual is involved in the study, and at the end of the study (month 6). All gift cards will be distributed via U.S. Mail directly to individual participants.

Interested? If you are the administrator/manager of an EMS agency that is eligible to participate, and wish to participate or wish to know more about this study, please contact the study principal investigator (Daniel Patterson, PhD, NRP) at: [email protected] or 412-864-3830.

Excellent story on the early history of EMS.

Assistant Chief John Moon shares his experience being a member of the Freedom House Ambulance Service, training with Peter Safar and Nancy Caroline, and what it was like working the streets of Pittsburgh in the 70's and 80's.

There is still a few days to submit your ideas or concepts for consideration for development as new EMS quality measures by the August 30, 2020 deadline. This is your opportunity to have a voice in quality measurement development and it is a very easy process and takes but a minute or two to complete. Your concept can be as simple as one of the assessments or treatments you perform everyday. An example for a quality measure for a pediatric respiratory assessment would be "Percentage of EMS responses originating from a 911 request for patients less than 18 years old with primary or secondary impression of respiratory distress who had a respiratory assessment."
How do you measure quality in your EMS system? You have a set of standardized quality measures that are used nationally. The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA) is currently conducting a Call for Concepts for quality measures. These concepts will be evaluated by a panel of EMS subject matter experts for possible development into a new quality measure.
A good quality measure is one that measures something essential for quality as opposed to just something that is nice to know. Some examples of areas to address through quality measures are: Clinical treatment, Call take and dispatch (EMD), Safety, and Response times.
Everyone is encourage to consider submitting one or more concepts as the more concepts that are received this only helped in the development of useful measures. You can submit your concepts at this link: https://www.nemsqa.org/measure-development-process/. The deadline for submission is August 30, 2020 but you are encouraged to submit your concepts soon.

The Census Bureau's ongoing surveys assist in measuring the economic impact of pandemics and other emergencies, creating plans for the country's eventual recovery. #NationalEMSWeek recognizes the work that EMS workers provide to communities and without Census data, EMS workers would not have the information needed to respond to emergencies quickly and effectively.

I became disabled after contracting a contagious illness as a volunteer EMT. Now that I am the one that is need of help, my life is in danger from the CRIMINAL ABUSE by people paid to help that no one will do a damn thing to stop. By the time I got sick, I had been ostracized by my squad and therefore my town because of my association with people with disabilities (both pro and volunteer). I was actually told my the squad president that people who were different (specifically disabled by autism) were not allowed at the building because other members did not like them......my town has rallied around others who could get by without help, buy won't do a damn thing for me....not even volunteer an hour to help with things I can't physically do for myself. MY LIFE IS IN DANGER. I can only afford to live a couple more months due to the CRIMINAL ABUSE I have been subjected to by people paid with tax dollars to help.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAgglZzgDLA&t=12s Please share my video. I need it to go viral to try to get the attention of someone to stop the CRIMINAL ABUSE against me by people paid to help...specifically a former dating partner who was an administrator with the NJ Division Disability Services/BI Fund who used his state job to engage in criminal abuse against me....and no one will do a damn thing. I spent my life helping others, as a volunteer EMT, I contracted a contagious illness which caused a seizure and TBI.
This can benefit everyone who volunteers, a selfless job now gets recognized! SHARE!
