Community Paramedicine News

Community Paramedicine is slowly creeping in to the national discussion about health care, and it’s about time.  Until now, most of the community paramedicine talk and focus has been around rural health care. There are few urban agencies that have turned towards CP to ease the stress on the health care systems in larger cities.

Los Angeles County EMS, one of the largest multijurisdictional EMS agencies in the country, is officially looking in to the possibility of Community Paramedicine. The article is from California Healthline, and well worth the read. This will be a very interesting process to follow, and I encourage everyone with a vested interest in EMS to keep track of this initiative. IF L.A. County EMS moves towards community paramedicine it could set the national model for urban community paramedicine, and it’s about time.

Congratulations, California, for again being the leader in EMS.
