Webinar Dec 3 | Patient-Centered QI and System Design

From Firstwatch, Prodigy EMS, and the Center for Patient Safety

Conversations that Matter:
Patient-Centered QI and System Design
December 3, 2020 | Noon ET | Learn More & Register►

Most EMS systems claim to put the patient first, yet they still work 24-hour shifts, drive ambulances designed so that patients face the rear, and have QI systems that are not connected to the rest of the healthcare system.

Join us for this installment of Conversations that Matter, when facilitator Mike Taigman will explore how to create a more patient- and people-centered EMS organization with Jeff Jarvis, MD, MS, EMT-P, medical director for Williamson County EMS and Marble Falls Area EMS; former paramedic and hospital executive Bill Atkinson, PhD, EMT-P; and Brian LaCroix, EMS coordinator with the Center for Patient Safety. This session is sure to expand your knowledge and may just challenge your beliefs in the process.

Technology transformation in EMS is hard (and scary!). Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems are the backbone of effective EMS performance, data analytics, expanded services, and personnel satisfaction. Fort Worth’s MedStar revolutionized their dispatch operations to power not only more efficient and effective operations, but revolutionize their system away from being address-centric, to patient-centric. Learn how this high-performance system uses automation, machine learning and decision support technology to improve deployment, balance system efficiency with crew satisfaction, and provide enhanced services that would not be possible with ‘traditional’ CAD systems.

Joining us to provide insight into these issues from a variety of perspectives will be…

  • Elizabeth Roden has been a MedStar field provider for 6 years, and a AAA Star of Life in 2017.
  • Raylon Bryant is a dispatch supervisor in MedStar’s 9-1-1 communication center. Raylon originally joined MedStar in 2003 and was a field provider prior to joining the communications team.
  • Ken Simpson has been MedStar’s Chief Operations Officer since 2017.  Prior to joining MedStar, Ken led numerous high-performance EMS operations in Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama.
  • Matt Zavadsky is MedStar’s Chief Strategic Integration Officer.  He has helped lead the development and implementation of MedStar’s MIH programs since 2009.

Learn insights directly from the users of the technology, communications center and field personnel, as well as agency leaders about their experiences with MedStar’s CAD transformation from today’s technology, to the technology of tomorrow!
