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.
