Dear EMS1 Member,
Community paramedicine and mobile-integrated healthcare programs seek to reduce non-emergent EMS transport to hospitals, lowering hospital admissions and readmission, and providing more appropriate medical resources for community members in need.

In this special newsletter, our experts provide tips for overcoming barriers to community paramedicine and implementing successful programs, and explore whether community paramedicine is diffusing fast enough to impact prehospital care.

View the complete coverage here and let us know if you have additional insight into how to advance community paramedicine efforts.
