Creating and Using Evidence-based Quality Measures in EMS: The National EMS Quality Alliance

Hosted by NHTSA’s Office of EMS on January 30 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT


In 2019, theNational EMS Quality Alliance(NEMSQA) was created to continue the work of EMS Compass, a two-year national initiative that created a process for developing evidence-based quality measures for EMS. A collaboration of several national EMS organizations, NEMSQA recently released its first set of measures after a robust and rigorous process. These national measures, which use data elements from the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS), will help EMS agencies across the country measure and benchmark their performance in key operational and clinical areas and improve the effectiveness of the care provided to patients and communities.

In this EMS Focus webinar, you'll hear from leaders of NEMSQA who were involved in the development, testing, and implementation of these EMS performance measures.

In addition, the panelists will share:

  • What the NEMSQA measures are and how they can be assessed using your EMS data
  • How NEMSQA enhances the value of EMS systems and how members of the EMS community can participate in and support NEMSQA's future efforts
  • How EMS organizations are using the measures to evaluate and improve care in their communities
