Unacceptable publisher risk for questions about Medicare EMT program

The Medicare EMT program is an important part of our national healthcare safety net. However, there are barriers to membership accessibility and participation, particularly among hard-to-reach Medicare beneficiaries.”Unfortunately, there was a lack of attention to the lack of EMT licensure studies, such as American Medical Student EMT (AMSE). Since the appearance of a recent data supplement about clinical studies on neurological outcomes after EMT, Public Citizen Research Foundation (PCRF) has conducted a series of blog posts highlighting data from that, as well as an in-depth look at controversies surrounding the Medicare EMT program. AMSE, for example, was first examined in 1980 on the basis of the idea that 6.5 percent of all newborn deaths were due to related cause. While participation in those studies was later reduced due to ER complaints, a 2016 analysis found that the estimates in the ER results were likely to overestimate this number of EMT-related deaths. In 2016, the Institute of Medicine ‘found no evidence of a medical or surgical reason for the failure to enroll in those [sic] studies,’ further questioning the data sources and the data. PCRF also wrote a Post on the subject of recruitment and retention of Entertainment Industry Group members due to FDA regulations in 2015.
