December 27, 2007 - Release of Protected Health Information and Confidential CQI information

Earlier this month the EMS Agency discovered that the Stockton Professional Firefighters, Local 456 posted Stockton Fire Department continuous quality improvement (CQI) documents on its website. The EMS Agency reviewed the documents and determined that the documents contained protected health information and confidential quality improvement information. Because the documents originated from and were released by the City of Stockton Fire Department, the EMS Agency issued a "Notice to Cure" to the City of Stockton Fire Department on December 12, 2007, to mitigate the release of the information. The City of Stockton Fire Department sent copies of its response to the Notice to Cure to each of the hospitals, ambulance providers, air ambulance providers, and fire departments serving San Joaquin County.

Below are links to the EMS Agency's December 12, 2007, letter to the Stockton Fire Department, the City's initial responses to the EMS Agency's letter, and other related correspondence which explain the EMS Agency's concern with the release of the HIPPA protected patient identifiable information and other confidential information:

Last week the Stockton Professional Firefighters, Local 456 removed the documents from its website when it was made aware that the disclosure violated privacy rights and confidentiality procedures. The EMS Agency is waiting for confirmation from the City of Stockton Fire Department that it has taken the necessary steps to mitigate any damage caused by this disclosure and to correct its internal procedures to prevent further disclosures.

August 31, 2007 - San Joaquin County Installs New EMS Medical Communications System

San Joaquin County Emergency Medical Services announced today the installation of a new UHF Medical Network (Med-Net) Radio Communications System. The new system replaces a thirty-year-old communication system and, with a more reliable digital system, is now compatible with the San Joaquin County Master Communications Plan. The new system will improve communications between area hospitals and pre-hospital care providers during disasters as well as routine incidents. Further, it will enable communications between the hospitals and ambulances from outside the county providing assistance during large-scale disasters in San Joaquin County.

The project included the installation of a new UHF radio base station, remote control desk set and antenna in each of the seven acute care hospitals in the county. A new digital voice-logging recorder was installed at San Joaquin General Hospital, which serves as the base hospital, allowing all communications between the hospital and pre-hospital care providers (i.e., paramedics) in the field. This provides a mechanism for reviewing all communications and will be used for quality improvement purposes to ensure the highest level of patient care during emergencies. Receivers were installed in Clements, Escalon, Farmington, French Camp, Lodi, Ripon, Stockton, Thornton and Tracy to provide countywide communication with the base hospital.

At a cost of $510,000.00, this project was funded by two grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' National Hospital Preparedness Program, administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Additional funding was also provided through a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

July 19, 2007 - Educational Standards for EMR, EMT, AEMT, Paramedic to Implement the National EMS Scope of Practice Model

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) have entered into a Cooperative Agreement with the National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE) to develop the National EMS Education Standards. The National EMS Education Standards will replace the current US DOT National Standard Curricula (NSC). This project is part of the implementation of the EMS Education Agenda: A Systems Approach and follows the National EMS Core Content and the National EMS Scope of Practice Model projects that were finalized prior to this project. Information regarding the project is at www.nemsed.org.

Formal educational standards will help guide EMS Education Program Managers and Educators in making appropriate decisions about what material to cover in the academic setting. The standards will also be used by publishers to develop instructional materials. The education standards will be based upon the National EMS Scope of Practice Model (Scope of Practice Model) and each National EMS Education Standards document will provide the minimal terminal learning objectives for the identified EMS personnel licensure levels.

The National EMS Education Standards will be designed to increase EMS education program flexibility, encourage creativity in education programs, and improve and facilitate alternative delivery methods, such as problem based learning, computer-aided instruction, distance learning, programmed self-instruction, and other methods.

The Draft Standards for each level are at www.nemsed.org/draft_standards/index.cfm.

June 12, 2007 - Civil Grand Jury Releases Report on Emergency Medical Services; Calls on the cities of Stockton, Lodi, and Manteca to immediately turn over dispatch of 911 calls to American Medical Response (AMR)

After a thorough investigation of San Joaquin County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) the Grand Jury has recommended that "the cities of Stockton, Lodi, and Manteca immediately begin to have their Emergency Medical Needs dispatched by Lifecom."

Most cities in San Joaquin County complied with the County's EMS Plan on May 1, 2006, and transferred their 911 emergency medical calls to the County's contracted EMS dispatch center AMR/Lifecom. The cities of Stockton, Lodi, and Manteca have refused to transfer 911 calls to AMR/Lifecom citing concerns with public safety, however the Grand Jury disagrees.

The Grand Jury acknowledged the ongoing litigation between the County and non-compliant cities stating "no matter the outcome, these cities should reevaluate their stance on Emergency Medical Dispatch and work together to serve the residents of San Joaquin County."

The Grand Jury dismissed accusations that the EMS Agency and its administrator had manipulated the system and acted negligently in administering the new contract, stating simply that the accusations of mismanagement and manipulation had "no validity".

Further, the Grand Jury found that the EMS Agency itself had identified "the only real threat which might affect the response and provision of emergency medical services" that of "the growing problem of delays of transferring care from the ambulances to the emergency departments".

In conclusion, the city councils of Stockton, Lodi and Manteca are required by the Grand Jury to "report to the Presiding Judge of the San Joaquin County Superior Court, in writing and within 90 days" with a response to the Grand Jury recommendations.

June 4, 2007 - GAO Releases Ambulance Cost Study

The General Accountability Office (GAO) has released an ambulance cost study, Ambulance Providers: Costs and Expected Medicare Margins Vary Greatly. Among important findings, the report concludes that ambulance providers are paid by Medicare, on the average, about six percent less than their costs in providing the ambulance services. The report also found that costs are 17 percent lower for services originating in "super rural" areas, giving rise to a concern that reduced access to ambulance services for Medicare beneficiaries may arise in these areas. GAO recommends that the administrator of CMS monitor utilization of ambulance transports to ensure that Medicare payments are adequate to provide for beneficiary access to ambulance services, particularly in super-rural areas. CMS agreed with GAO's recommendation. To view the report, visit http://www.gao.gov/cgi-bin/getrpt?GAO-07-383.

June 4, 2007 - FCC Adopts NPRM on Enhanced 911 Location Accuracy and Reliability Requirements for Wireless Carriers and Interconnected VoIP Providers

The NPRM seeks to ensure that E911 service meets the needs of public safety and the American people. The NPRM also takes into consideration the evolution in the use of wireless devices and the further development of location technologies. The primary objective is to advance policies, rules and initiatives that support the efficient and reliable transmission of meaningful automatic location information for wireless cell phone users and users of interconnected VoIP service to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) to better ensure rapid emergency response and save lives.
