The Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program is funded through a federal grant administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration.
The goal of the grant is to ensure that all children and adolescents receive appropriate care in an emergency through research, quality improvement initiatives, and a close-knit network of state partners that carry out evidence-based and best-practice improvement plans in 58 states and U.S. territories.
Every EMSC program works toward nine performance measures determined by the Health Resources and Services Administration Maternal and Child Health program. This allows the EMSC programs to develop special goals, activities, and projects that prioritize improving emergency care for children within each state. Vermont EMSC works with partner organizations that focus on data analysis, quality improvement, and pediatric research to ensure the best possible outcomes for children needing emergency care across the state and the country.
