what is a best practice wikipedia defines it as
What is a “Best Practice”Wikipedia defines it as…

A Best Practice is the belief that there is a technique, method, process, activity, incentive or reward that is more effective at delivering a particular outcome than any other technique, method, process, etc. The idea is that with proper processes, checks, and testing, a desired outcome can be delivered with fewer problems and unforeseen complications. Best practices can also be defined as the most efficient (least amount of effort) and effective (best results) way of accomplishing a task, based on repeatable procedures that have proven themselves over time for large numbers of people.

why ems needs best practices
Why EMS Needs “Best Practices”
  • The Theory of EMS Darwinism
  • Service delivery model variations / inconsistencies
  • Lack of commonly accepted operational standards (like NFPA for Fire Service)
  • Mix of public / private / government ownership
  • Mix of for profit / non-profit models
  • Lack of standardized advanced managerial education platform
  • Industry has attempted to bridge educational gap with limited success
  • Success lies in sharing clinical & billing best practices but not operational ones
why best practices
Why Best Practices?

“As EMS providers, we invite the public to literally trust us with their lives. We advise the public that, during a medical emergency, they should rely upon our organization, and not any other. We even suggest that it is safer to count on us, than the resources of one’s own family and friends. We had better be right.

Regardless of actual performance, EMS organizations do not differ significantly in their claimed goals and values. Public and private, nearly all claim dedication to patient care. Efficient or not, most claim an intent to give the community its money’s worth. And whether the money comes from user fees or local tax sources, the claim is the same—the best patient care for the dollars available. It’s almost never true.

Our moral obligation to pursue clinical and response time improvement is widely accepted. But our related obligation to pursue economic efficiency is poorly understood. Many believe these are separate issues. They are not. Economic efficiency is nothing more than the ability to convert dollars into service. If we could do better with the dollars we have available, but we don’t, the responsibility must be ours. In EMS, that responsibility is enormous—it is impossible to waste dollars without also wasting lives.”

Jack L. Stout

the theory of ems darwinism
The Theory of EMS Darwinism
  • Darwinism / Evolutionary Theory
    • Isolated environments produce similar species that evolve in different ways from each other
    • Evolutionary adaptation to the environment occurs to ensure survival of the species
    • EMS has “evolved” under these principles
the theory of ems darwinism1
The Theory of EMS Darwinism
  • EMS agencies are isolated from each other due to proprietary barriers created by varying system designs, ownership models and funding sources
  • Gives credence to the phrase “If you’ve seen one EMS system, you’ve seen one EMS system”
  • However, they are still of the same species…
  • Common operational denominators exist for every EMS system which provide the foundation for “Best Practices”
  • Acceptance of these “Best Practices” depends on your system design, necessity for change, culture and other factors
my industry best practice experience has been
My industry “Best Practice”experience has been…

Necessity may be the mother invention however…

…it also drives acceptance of the previously unacceptable

current future economic and demographic conditions
Current / Future Economic and Demographic Conditions
  • If there ever has been a time where necessity will drive innovation, acceptance of the unacceptable and the merging of separately evolved species into one, it is now!
  • Shrinking public funding mechanisms, uncertain healthcare dollars and rising unemployment in the face of a large aging boomer generation will force industry innovation and change
  • Funding / service level / employment compensation tradeoff’s or service delivery model design changes…you decide (as may the current presidential administration)

technology trends

Technology Trends

Best Practices in EMS

best practices in ems technology trends
Best Practices in EMS – Technology Trends
  • Traditional EMS centric software business models are set to fail us as an industry (and already have)
    • Once market penetration hits, maintenance fees can’t sustain the infrastructure therefore these companies are forced to diversify to survive and customer service / enhancement cycles don’t meet our expectations or needs
    • Compare and contrast any SAAS based business model against this traditional one
      • ePCR / eScheduling / eHR / ePayroll / eBilling vs ANY CAD System
      • Emergence of “CAD can’t so we will” companies
      • Ability to meet our needs (new functions and features)
      • Customer service
best practices in ems technology trends1
Best Practices in EMS – Technology Trends
  • Software as a service (SAAS) will soon dominate most (if not all) of our technologies
    • Cloud based computing & data storage
    • Billing / CAD / Payroll systems are HERE or coming!
    • Highly cost effective due to economies of scale these systems bring without the need for infrastructure or on-site support
    • High reliability due to “groups” ability to buy into technology they could never afford on their own
best practices in ems technology trends2
Best Practices in EMS – Technology Trends
  • EMS Industry has been fickle in accepting SAAS
    • Customer ROI, cost effectiveness or “Flash and Pizzazz” appears to drive adaptation
    • Senior leadership whom don’t trust the technology or think they have to have it local to maintain control
    • Reliability / Redundancy issues (internet)
    • Private industry quicker to adopt then government (jobs at stake)
    • K.I.S.S. principle typically used may keep some away
      • E.g. The use of OTC GPS units

EMS System Design

Best Practices in EMS

best practices in ems ems system designs
Best Practices in EMS - EMS System Designs
  • System designs must comprehend EMS economics to survive
    • Not effected by typical elasticity of supply & demand
      • Population size, age, socio-economics & other demographics
    • Pricing / quantity does not drive increases or decreases in overall service area demands (volume)
      • May shift it from one provider to another however
    • Free market competition drives up costs / prices down / drives down quality / forces stupid loss leader ideologies in order to gain market share
    • System fragmentation decreases economies of scale, significantly increases costs of operations and typically provides for poor patient care (response times)
best practices in ems ems system designs1
Best Practices in EMS - EMS System Designs
  • No EMS system design is “perfect”
  • “Successful” ones include the following features:
    • Limited or zero local tax subsidy
    • Service accountability through performance guarantees and standards
    • Ability to replace the provider for performance failures
best practices in ems ems system designs2
Best Practices in EMS - EMS System Designs
  • “Successful” ones include the following features:
    • Closed market with sole source provider performing emergency and non-emergency services (most economically efficient model)
    • Rates and performance controlled through publically accountable external entities (not internal)
      • Ham & Eggs breakfast analogy
        • (Chicken has a stake but the pig is committed)
    • Balance patient care, employee wellbeing and financial responsibility
best practices in ems ems system designs3
Best Practices in EMS - EMS System Designs
  • Recognition that the deployment model used within an EMS system has a direct correlation on system costs and patient care effectiveness and outcomes
    • Demand driven systems provide considerably better service reliability to a much larger patient population
    • Fixed geographic based systems provide good service to the first patient, but not necessarily the second, third and so on (work well for areas with low second call probability)
    • History, economics, unions and politics are typical determiners of EMS system design type until the EMS system kills the wrong person or costs too much money
best practices in ems ems system designs4
Best Practices in EMS - EMS System Designs
  • Recognition that we may not make as large of an impact as we once thought
    • So busy proving that we could no one ever stopped to ask the questions if we should (until recently)
    • ALS may not be as important as once thought
    • True clinically significant response times
