Are you interested in the information and technology needed to provide better patient care and support agency management?
Then we invite you to join and participate in NEMSMA’s newly formed Information and Technology Committee!
The Board of the National EMS Management Association (NEMSMA) is happy to announce the formation of its 11th committee, the Information and Technology Committee (ITC). Each committee has a board liaison to support the committee chairperson appointed by the president. NEMSMA members volunteer their expertise and time to pursue the goals and objectives of the association.
Board member Nick Nudell, serving as the ITC Board liaison, commented, “This is the perfect way for paramedics interested in information and technology to get involved in their profession.” The ITC is responsible for establishing the professional expectations and competencies required of an EMS agency’s information managers. NEMSMA President Vince Robbins says, “These are equivalent to the CIO positions in most corporations.”
The ITC will establish a new ITC Officer credential along with education requirements for the various facets of the ITC role, and develop materials to support this officer’s responsibility as a critical team member. The ITC will work to develop position papers on this subject and identify best practices for information management in EMS agencies.
