TENTH ANNUAL REPORT ON THE HEALTHCARE WORKFORCE
Modern Healthcare presents its annual look at key industry trends affecting the healthcare workforce.
This year’s report focuses on issues involving the very front end of healthcare delivery: medical transportation, specifically the people who make up our nation’s emergency medical services system. Who are the people staffing our ambulances and being the first to respond to medical emergencies, by land and by air, and how are their roles changing?
Among the issues are reimbursement for services; education and compensation for EMS personnel; and improvements in data collection to better track vital signs of the sector’s workforce.
