NEMSQA Measures

National EMS Quality Alliance Measure Set 

In August 2019, the NEMSQA Measure Development Committee and Board of Trustees approved the eleven measures below for inclusion in the National EMS Quality Alliance Measure Set. The measure worksheets containing the technical specifications (including pseudocode) to support mapping measures/data to the National Emergency Medical Services Information System (NEMSIS) registry are available under  NEMSQA Measure Technical Documents.  Users are required to create a FREE user profile to access the technical specifications in order to facilitate communication of updates to the measures. Additional resources developed to assist with measure use and implementation are posted beneath the table. 

Agencies and EMS professionals are encouraged to choose measures most meaningful to their patient population and implement those measures to improve performance and patient care. Data should be collected for an initial baseline period and results used to develop meaningful interventions to improve quality of care.
