Federal Committee Releases Telemedicine Framework for EMS, 9-1-1
Wednesday, June 09, 2021 | Comments

Although it was the COVID-19 pandemic that accelerated the adoption of telemedicine by EMS and 9-1-1 systems across the country, its use is likely only going to continue to grow. Telemedicine in EMS and 9-1-1 has many potential benefits and will be a key tool to help communities achieve the vision of a people-centered EMS system described by EMS Agenda 2050.

To help EMS and 9-1-1 organizations who are in the early stages of planning or implementing telemedicine programs, the Federal Interagency Committee on EMS brought together experts to create the “Telemedicine Framework for EMS and 911 Organizations.” The intent of this resource is to provide an understanding of opportunities to leverage telemedicine to deliver high-quality and cost-efficient care at the right place and the right time.

The framework offers suggestions for how to engage stakeholders and policymakers and how to assess financial considerations when implementing a program. It also cites and links to a number of other resources, making it a great starting place to learn about telemedicine in EMS and 9-1-1 and find more information.
