DHSS Releases Study of New Jersey’s Emergency Medical Services System


 

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services today released an independent, comprehensive review of the state’s emergency medical services (EMS) system that had been mandated by the state legislature last year, Health and Senior Services Commissioner Fred M. Jacobs, M.D., J.D. announced today.

The study, “EMS System Review,” was conducted by TriData Corp. of Arlington, Virginia, a nationally recognized emergency services consulting firm.

In January 2006, the Legislature passed a resolution requiring the review of the state’s entire EMS system, including ground EMS, the air medical system, the EMS workforce, and the structure of the EMS system, among other issues.  The purpose was to determine both the immediate and long-term needs of the system.

          DHSS is currently reviewing the study to determine what recommendations it will make regarding the future of New Jersey’s EMS system.

          The report is available on the department’s web site at: www.nj.gov/health/ems/documents/ems_study_report.pdf.
