Over six decades, paramedics have evolved from ambulance drivers to sophisticated providers of intensive emergency health care. The time has come for these highly productive sources of care in the field to be more fully integrated into California’s overall health care and public health spheres. The result will be higher quality care and improved community health at reduced cost to taxpayers and payers. Community paramedicine (CP), also known as Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) is a locally designed, community-based, collaborative model of care that leverages the skills of paramedics and emergency medical services (EMS) systems to take advantage of collaborations between EMS and other health care and social service providers.

Earlier this year, the California legislature enacted the Community Paramedicine and Triage to Alternate Destination Act (AB 1544) to authorize local EMS agencies to develop community paramedicine and alternative transport destination efforts.
