Innovation & Progress

EMS 10 honorees paving the path for the future of EMS

 

 
 
 

A.J. Heightman, MPA, EMT-P | From the EMS 10: Innovators of EMS 2013 Issue


This is the sixth year of the EMS 10 Innovators in EMS program, jointly sponsored by Physio-Control and JEMS. The program has a simple mission but a powerful objective: Identify some of the best innovators in the EMS industry and alert the EMS community to their achievements to help providers and patients in the future.

The EMS 10 Innovators selection committee judged this year’s nominees on their hard work, dedication and selfless efforts in 2013 and selected the individuals or pairs they felt exhibited the innovations that can have the greatest impact on the future of EMS.

We profile each honoree in this special digital supplement to JEMS to not only inform and educate you on their innovative work in EMS, but also to encourage you to ride on the wave of their innovations, use them to better develop your EMS system, and inspire you and your colleagues to think outside the box, take some calculated risks and innovate in an area of EMS that you feel could make a difference for patients, EMS systems or your prehospital colleagues.
