Call for Concept Period Now Open for F.A.I.R. EMS Measurement Project

The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA), in collaboration with Florida Department of Health Division of Emergency Preparedness and Community Support, invites members of the EMS Community and the public to submit concepts for consideration in the Feasible, Actionable, Impactful, Relevant (F.A.I.R.) EMS Measurement Project.

This project, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, intends to develop rural-relevant quality measures to be used in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Community. 

The goal of the F.A.I.R. EMS Measurement Project is not only to improve access to quality of care in Florida’s rural areas but also to develop a national model that can be followed by other states.

NEMSQA will be providing measure development services for this project. As part of the measure development consultation services, NEMSQA is facilitating this national call for measure concepts and will be facilitating national public comment periods, later in the measure development process.

The deadline to submit measure concepts is March 11, 2020. Please contact Kelly Burlison, NEMSQA Staff, at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
