NEMSMA Board Members Brian Lacroix and Mike Taigman attended the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada Conference in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
In this picture they are meeting with PCC President Randy Mellow and PCC Executive Director Kelly Nash.
NEMSMA enjoys a close and collaborative relationship with the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada.
Brian Lacroix writes about the PCC conference in the July NEMSMA newsletter.
An important role for NEMSMA is to participate in the national efforts to move our industry forward. Your current and past board members have worked with NASEMO, NAEMT, NAEMSP and NAEMSE to craft how EMS systems and services will become a “New EMS” to play a key role within the changing healthcare organizations.
The EMS 3.0 white paper “Defining the Role of EMS in Our Nation’s Health Care Transformation: The New EMS Value Proposition” is posted on the left side of the NEMSMA.org website - click the "EMS 3.0" link. This paper is a starting point for what appears to be the largest change in EMS since the 1970’s.
Please read past president Troy Hagen’s report of the EMS 3.0 Transformational Summit in the May NEMSMA newsletter. Many key elements of EMS 3.0 were discussed.
