NAEMT Video Shows How MIH-CP Is Transforming EMS
September 25, 2014
All across our country, mobile integrated healthcare and community paramedicine (MIH-CP) programs are showing hospitals and the wider healthcare system that EMS is an important partner in improving the health of patients and controlling the cost of care.
To give EMS practitioners a vivid look at how MIH-CP programs work, NAEMT has created a new, 8-minute video, "Transforming EMS: Mobile Integrated Healthcare and Community Paramedicine." The video depicts:
- Mobile healthcare practitioners on-the-job, providing patient care;
- Powerful interviews with patients, who describe how mobile integrated healthcare has helped them improve their health – and their lives; and
- Compelling interviews with hospital and home healthcare executives, who believe it's critical to collaborate with EMS to improve patients' health.
Filmed primarily in Ft. Worth, TX, with footage from Wake County (NC) EMS and Allina Health EMS in Minneapolis, the video gives EMS practitioners an inside look at a key trend impacting our profession. The video is also a resource to share with those outside EMS, such as government officials and potential healthcare partners, to help them understand these innovations in EMS and our profession's commitment to meet our nation's healthcare needs.
We encourage you to watch the video and distribute the link widely to your co-workers, your professional network, healthcare decision makers in your community, and your elected government leaders so they too can understand the transformation underway in EMS.
