This week on the show I’d like to ask you what you expect to see in the coming year of EMS trends. Last year, the primary trend was a shift in our attention to community paramedicine and mobile integrated health care. This trend is taking us into the primary health care arena as we try to manage the numerous non-emergency patients we see in the course of our daily runs. It’s goal is to help some of these at-risk patients, who some may say overuse our EMS system, not use it nearly so much. Call it making a pre-emptive strike and helping them stay healthier and not need to call 911 so much.
My question to all of you is “Will this trend towards Mobile Integrated Healthcare or community paramedicine stick?” Is this going to be our primary approach as we move forward into 2014 and beyond? I’m serious. I want to know what you think. So here’s your chance. Leave a comment on this video post using the links below this article or shoot me an email with your reply. Send them in to me here, as always, to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll share some of the best of them in a future episode here on the MedicCast TV weekly commentary.
