NAEMT Video Depicts the Transformation of EMS To Improve Patient Health and Lower Cost of Care

Video provides a vivid look at how mobile integrated healthcare and community paramedicine programs work and the impact they have on our nation's healthcare.

CLINTON, Miss., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) announced the release of a new video, created to give emergency medical services (EMS) practitioners and other healthcare professionals a vivid look at how mobile integrated healthcare and community paramedicine (MIH-CP) programs work and the impact they have on our nation's healthcare.

"Transforming EMS: Mobile Integrated Healthcare and Community Paramedicine" is a brief introduction to the MIH-CP programs forming across the country — programs that 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.

"Answering 911 medical emergencies will always be a key part of the EMS mission. But with mobile integrated healthcare and community paramedicine, EMS is showing that EMTs and paramedics can actually help prevent 911 calls, whether it's navigating patients to destinations other than the emergency department or bringing care into their homes after hospital discharge. This compelling NAEMT video explores these important new developments in EMS," said Matt Zavadsky, public affairs director for MedStar mobile healthcare and chairman of the NAEMT MIH-CP Committee.

The video depicts mobile healthcare practitioners providing patient care, and contains powerful interviews with patients who describe how mobile integrated healthcare has helped improve their health, as well as hospital and home healthcare executives who believe it's critical to collaborate with EMS to improve patients' health. Filmed in Ft. Worth, Texas; Wake County, N.C.; and Minneapolis, Minn., the video provides an inside look at a key trend impacting the EMS profession and is designed to be a resource that helps those outside of the profession understand the innovations in EMS and our commitment to meet the nation's healthcare needs.

"It's critical that EMS practitioners and the wider healthcare community understand the important role that EMS can play as a partner in solving some of the problems faced by our healthcare system. By exploring important developments in the evolution of EMS, this compelling NAEMT video helps to achieve that," said NAEMT President Don Lundy.
