Call for Concept Period Now Open: F.A.I.R. Measurement Project
Deadline to submit concepts: August 30, 2020
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.
Not all concepts submitted will be chosen for inclusion in this project. However, all concepts will be considered and prioritized using the NEMSQA Measure Development and Adoption Process as outlined below.
