Data & Pronouns: Improving EMS & Patient Advocacy in 2022

The National EMS Information System Version 3 is a major revision to our electronic health records. Some of the new data fields will serve to accurately represent traditionally marginalized communities and provide actionable intelligence as healthcare improves and we assess EMS performance. Some of these fields are those that may be potentially sensitive for providers and patients. Providers may not yet be familiar with addressing and communicating with some of these patients. Key points for effective communication and compassion will help providers maintain patient dignity.
