EMS Community Invited to Test and Provide Feedback on Proposed Performance Measures

EMS Compass recently released its first set of EMS performance measures for public comment and testing. Funded by the NHTSA Office of EMS and led by the National Association of State EMS Officials, the EMS Compass initiative was created to go beyond just developing EMS performance measures and focus on the process used to create and validate them. It also ensures that process is one that can continue to be used to improve EMS performance into the future. The initiative now invites all members of the EMS community to view the measures at www.emscompass.org, test them using real data in EMS systems, and provide feedback.
