What is the Community Paramedic Program?

Through formalized training and education, experienced paramedics have expanded their role as a traditional EMS provider. Community Paramedics focus on improving quality of life and health outcomes for high risk patients through education, chronic disease management, medication management, home visits, linkage to resources, and other services.

In-home Visits May Include:

  • Home Risk Assessments
  • Vital Sign Monitoring
  • Chronic Disease & Medication Education
  • Wound Care
  • Motivational Coaching
  • Referrals to Community Resources
  • Discussion of the role of EMS
