EMS Insider Goes Digital


EMS Insider has launched an all-new website, combining news, exclusive articles, an archive of back issues and a handy repository for supporting documents, all into one location. As with the printed publication, the focus of the website is news and articles that EMS managers, supervisors, chiefs and medical directors can use, including in-depth reports, research, legislative updates, announcements and industry news. But the website allows us to add value to your Insider subscription through immediate updates to developing issues, breaking news alerts and one-click access to related content.


Because news never rests, the Insider website will always be a work in progress, with content added frequently, including ongoing updates and breaking news stories. Nearly all of the content will be exclusive to EMS Insider subscribers, accessible via a one-time quick login process. Subscribers will be able to access a digital version of the current issue and back issues as well as perform various other functions. All subscribers will continue to receive the printed version of the newsletter unless they opt out.


The new site correlates with the launch of an e-newsletter, EMS Insider: Update, which features a summary of the most relevant stories and related links and resources. A Facebook page and Twitter account round out the Insider’s new digital footprint.


The value of subscribing to the EMS Insider is that it takes the reader deeper into the topic than popular newscoverage, with links to related websites and documents that give EMS managers the tools to quickly and efficiently implement changes within their own organization.


With the new website, readers have an added benefit–a repository of archived documents, PDFs, spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations provided by your colleagues as supporting documentation to Insider articles. These documents, available for subscribers to download and use, include a variety of protocols, checklists, guidelines, presentations and procedures to something as specific as a letter from OSHA outlining hospitals’ responsibility to decontaminate backboards before returning them to EMS agencies. Readers will also find white papers, analysis tools and research. Searchable by date and subject, these documents are available to help busy EMS leaders and medical directors quickly and easily find and use what has already been developed–saving precious time and money.


Putting news in context is what the EMS Insider does best, especially as it relates to healthcare reform. Only the Insider keeps EMS leaders current with the various challenges and opportunities provided by the changing healthcare landscape, offering insightful articles on how to contract with accountable care organizations (ACOs), legislative concerns and how to resolve them, and much more. The website consolidates all of the healthcare reform articles published in the monthly issues of the Insider–an invaluable resource for prehospital managers and directors.


Since its acquisition by James O. Page and his company, JEMS Communications, in 1988, the EMS Insider has been the premier publication for EMS leaders who wish to remain knowledgeable about the business side of EMS. The publication has sought to help EMS managers and supervisors tackle the unique–and not so unique–issues facing them on a daily basis.


Content for the Insider is written by Insider staff who continue their commitment to the EMS community. Specialty articles are provided by industry experts. Regular columnists include Allison J. Bloom, Esq.; Jerry Overton; W. Ann Maggiore, JD, EMT-P; Jay Fitch, PhD; R. Michael Scarano, JD; Dave Williams, PhD; Doug Wolfberg, JD; and Matt Zavadsky, MS-HSA, EMT. Special features from additional EMS experts offer specific how-to information for busy professionals who need more than just an overview of an issue.


The EMS Insider is owned and operated by PennWell Corporation, of Tulsa, Okla. PennWell also publishes the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS), FireRescue Magazine, Law Officer Magazine and Public Safety Communications, among others. PennWell is also the producer of the EMS Today Conference & Exposition.
