Is your EMS agency using a NEMSIS-3 compliant data system?
Are you interested in improving the performance of your system?
Then, you are invited to participate in EMS Compass performance measure testing.
The EMS Compass Initiative is proud to announce the release of candidate measures for public testing. After much deliberation and national collaboration through an NQF-modeled measure development process, we are asking EMS agencies to help us refine these candidate measures before they receive final approval. They’ve been through the “lab testing” phase, but now it’s time to put them to the test in the real world.
What’s in it for you? Monitoring your performance over time with EMS Compass measures enables you to improve patient care directly in your system. You’ll learn a lot about the measures and provide EMS Compass with feedback that will improve the measures before they are finalized. We urge you to participate in this important phase of the evolution of these measures.
Your vendor may have enabled you to “turn on” EMS Compass measures in your system with little effort on your behalf. If not, you may be able to program these measures into your system. After you’ve had a chance to implement the measures, please visit the EMS Compass website to submit your feedback.
An EMS Compass Vendor Readiness guide, the information needed for manual implementation in your electronic patient care or analytic software, and feedback forms are available at http://www.emscompass.org/ems-compass-measures/.
If your system is not EMS Compass ready, we encourage you to contact your software vendor to request they incorporate EMS Compass measures into their software.
