A new report highlights the importance of taking the EMS profession from one that simply collects data to one that turns those data into meaningful information that drives decision-making.

Issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Office of EMS, the report, Beyond EMS Data Collection: Envisioning an Information-Driven Future , outlines some of the findings from a summit convened by NHTSA earlier this year and attended by more than 30 leaders of national organizations, as well as federal officials and industry experts. John Becknell, PhD, facilitated the discussion and chaired a ten-member panel that wrote the report.
