The International Academies of Emergency Dispatch® (IAED), a U.S.-based pre-hospital care organization dedicated to developing protocol for the emergency dispatch environment, and Ambulance Today, Europe’s leading pre-hospital care publication, based in the U.K., have entered a partnership agreement to enhance the distribution of EMS news and research to a global audience.

Ambulance Today Editor Declan Heneghan said the partnership is a natural alliance stemming from their joint vision to develop an EMS healthcare system infrastructure that builds on the accomplishments and successes achieved by organizations worldwide.

“The IAED and Ambulance Today already have extensive reach through their separate, although complementary platforms,” Heneghan said. “This exciting new partnership will draw our audiences together and focus greater attention on proven processes-based pre-hospital research. But it’s also about the basic principle of encouraging pre-hospital people from around the globe to communicate with each other, increase their knowledge networks and to enjoy learning from each other at the same time.”

Jerry Overton, Chair of IAED’s Board of Accreditation, said the partnership delivers immediate value to the Ambulance Today audience and IAED membership.

 “Together with Ambulance Today, we help EMS organizations optimize their resource use, explore data volumes and data types, and achieve true insight and forward vision to improve operational efficiency,” he said. “This emphasizes our commitment to encourage consistent high-quality pre-hospital care.”
