ESO Becomes National EMS Quality Alliance Partner
August 17, 2021 – AUSTIN, Texas – ESO, a leading data and software company serving emergency medical services (EMS), fire departments, hospitals, and state EMS/Trauma offices, has partnered with the National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA) to support efforts to design, test and evaluate quality measures for emergency medical services and health systems of care.
“At the end of the day, quality and performance improvement are essential to making our communities safer and healthier – for patients and providers,” said Dr. Brent Myers, Chief Medical Officer for ESO. “The work NEMSQA is doing is vital to driving better care for patients, and we’re proud to be a partner.”
The National EMS Quality Alliance is the EMS standard bearer for EMS quality measures, dedicated to developing, endorsing, and promoting the use of evidence-based quality measures for EMS and healthcare systems to improve care and outcomes for patients, providers, and the community. NEMSQA brings together a diverse group of experts in EMS clinical care, data standards and quality improvement through a collaborative, sustainable process. This collaboration is a natural fit for ESO who has long had a focus on national EMS performance and research including the annual ESO EMS Index, multiple peer-reviewed studies and papers, and the work of the ESO Data Collaborative.
“ESO is a leader in transforming the way EMS uses data to inform and improve care provided to patients, not only in the prehospital setting but throughout the healthcare system. NEMSQA is excited to gain an experienced partner that will help advance what NEMSQA is trying to achieve, a higher quality and safer experience for patients.” said Dr. Michael Redlener, President of NEMSQA.
Reporting on key quality measures will continue to be part of ESO Analytics and highlighted periodically in the bi-annual ESO EMS Index.
