EMS Compass

EMS Compass has now released its first draft EMS Performance Measures for public review and comments. To view the draft, go to: http://emscompass.org/ems-compass-measures/  These initial draft performance measures are limited and focus on the treatment of Hypoglycemia, Stroke and Seizure. The public comment period ends on May 6, 2016.

Funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Office of EMS and led by the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO), the EMS Compass initiative has engaged a wide range of EMS stakeholders to develop performance measures that are relevant to EMS agencies, regulators, and patients. The measures will be based on the latest version of the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) and will allow local and state EMS systems to use their own data meaningfully. For more information on this innovative effort, visit their website at: EMS Compass
