2023 EMS Trend Report

EMS Trend Report 2023: What paramedics want in 2023 is the latest iteration of the EMS Trend Report, produced through a collaboration between Fitch & Associates, EMS1, the EMS Survey Team and NEMSMA, and sponsored by Pulsara.

In this year’s EMS Trend Survey, we turned the lens towards provider stress, and uncovered alarming levels causing providers to rethink their career path, as their rapport with patients, their own relationships and their health suffer. It’s clear from the survey results and the open-ended responses that poor leadership, in the form of insufficient resourcing, resource time management and resistance to adopting new technology and models will overstress the system and the medics within it.

We’ve engaged our friends and leaders in the EMS industry to offer their analysis and tips for how to nip provider stressors at the bud and mitigate the downstream effects of understaffing. We’re hopeful these insights will help you to inspire innovation at your own agencies. Please share the results with your colleagues and follow our ongoing coverage of the trends shaping EMS.
