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.
NEMSQA Mission Statement
NEMSQA will develop and endorse evidence-based quality measures for EMS and healthcare partners that improve the experience and outcomes of patients and care providers.
NEMSQA Vision Statement
Improving patient outcomes through the collaborative development of quality measures for EMS and health systems of care.
The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA), in collaboration with Florida Department of Health Division of Emergency Preparedness and Community Support, invites members of the EMS Community and the public to submit concepts for consideration in the Feasible, Actionable, Impactful, Relevant (F.A.I.R.) EMS Measurement Project. This project, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, intends to develop rural-relevant quality measures to be used in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Community. The goal of the F.A.I.R EMS Measurement Project is not only to improve access to quality of care in Florida’s rural areas but also to develop a national model that can be followed by other states.
