By EMS1 Staff

WASHINGTON — To learn how EMS organizations are effectively using the patient data they gather, the NHTSA’s Office of EMS is hosting a webinar that will explore how two agencies have used their data to improve performance.

According to a press release, the webinar panel will highlight two EMS agencies – Gold Cross Ambulance in Utah and JFK Medical Center EMS in New Jersey – and will look at how they are not only demonstrating the value patients and communities gain from EMS, but also improve patient care.

The panelists will talk about how Gold Cross collects patient data and exchanges with hospitals, how they have improved system-wide processes and their experience in enhancing the accuracy of assessments and treatments.

The panelists will also take a look at how JFK Medical Center EMS tracks changes in patients’ Rapid Emergency Medical Scores to measure the difference that EMS makes.

The webinar will take place May 15 at 3 p.m. EST. To register, click here.
