EMS Workforce for the 21st Century: A National Assessment

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are a critical component of any community’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system. Assuring the continued viability of the prehospital EMS workforce is a key concern for many local, State, Federal, and tribal EMS agencies, as well as national EMS organizations. As a first step in systematically addressing the issue, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Emergency Medical Services for Children program, supported a research project led by the Center for the Health Professions and School of Nursing at the University of California San Francisco with assistance from the Center for Health Workforce Studies at the University of Washington. The intent of this research is to provide guidance to the national EMS community in ensuring a viable EMS workforce for the future.

Updated Economic Analysis of the U.S. Rotary Wing Air Medical Transport Industry

Following the release of an earlier version of this report dated June 2013, Economic & Planning Systems (EPS) discovered that there were errors and inconsistencies in the underlying survey data used to report the economic benefits. After attention was brought to the fact that primary data collected and used from air medical transport (AMT) programs throughout the U.S. contained flaws in reported operational costs and volume (i.e. number of patient transports), EPS requested that the link to the existing study be removed from the MedEvac Foundation’s website until a revision could be prepared. The link below is a revision of that study.
