Using Data to Measure Value and Improve Patient Care – Two Stories of How EMS Data is Making a Difference

As EMS continues to embrace technology, collecting patient data has never been easier. Local and state EMS organizations are gathering more and more information, but many wonder how to effectively use it. Some agencies, including Gold Cross Ambulance in Utah and JFK Medical Center EMS in New Jersey, discuss how they’re using data not only to improve performance, but to demonstrate the value that EMS provides to patients and communities.

In the webinar, the panelists discuss Gold Cross’ experience collecting and exchanging patient data with hospitals, improving system-wide processes, and enhancing the accuracy of emergency assessments and treatments. They also share how JFK Medical Center EMS measures the difference EMS makes for individual patients by tracking changes in their Rapid Emergency Medical Scores
