Discover Mobile Integrated Healthcare (MIH)

Posted by Jessica Carmichael on 9/2/14 11:35 AM

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. Various programs like this have appeared across the United States, but a definitive resource that describes how to successfully implement such a program has not been available.

MIH Available: October 2014

Mobile Integrated Healthcare: Approach to Implementation will fill this void by serving as a reference not only to the EMS community, but also to other medical professionals working toward implementation of a successful MIH program. This dynamic resource provides a step-by-step approach for the identification of community needs, forming the appropriate partnerships, selection of staff, acquiring resources, patient identification, and overcoming hurdles to a successful program. Examples from successful programs across the country are included.

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." Check out the video today for a brief demonstration of Mobile Integrated Healthcare:
