ems agenda 2050

Twenty years ago, pioneers and leaders in the EMS industry described a vision of data-driven and evidence-based systems in the EMS Agenda for the Future. Since then, the profession has worked tirelessly to fulfill the vision set out in that landmark document.

Throughout 2017 and 2018, the EMS community is coming together to develop a new vision for the future of EMS. EMS Agenda 2050 is a collaborative and inclusive two-year project to create a bold plan for the next several decades. EMS community members, stakeholder organizations and the public are all encouraged to get involved in writing a new Agenda for the Future that will set forth a vision for the next thirty years of EMS system advancement.

How did we get here? Where are we now? Where do we want to go? These are the questions that framed the development of the 1996 EMS Agenda for the Future and are also shaping the current effort to build on that vision. Dr. Ricardo Martinez, an emergency physician who served as administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) when the original Agenda for the Future was created, shares the origins of that landmark document and how EMS Agenda 2050 offers a chance to continue to improve EMS systems and better serve patients, communities and EMS professionals.
