“What Are Community Paramedicine Programs Doing to Fill Rural Health Care Gaps?”
Community paramedicine is a strategy designed to help communities achieve the “Triple Aim”–improving care and population health while lowering costs–by deploying emergency medical technicians and paramedics as physician extenders. Community paramedicine programs offer multiple public health and primary care services that have the potential to shift costs from more to less expensive care settings and to provide appropriate care where vulnerable patients live. We will present study findings on characteristics and activities of rural-serving CP programs in the U.S. and consider the evidence on program outcomes.
