Creating an Evidence-Based Practice for EMS in Integrated Healthcare

Over the past few years, we have seen a proliferation of mobile integrated healthcare and community paramedicine (MIH-CP) programs launched by EMS agencies. Many programs that were initially funded by grant monies now need to find ways to be financially sustainable. In addition, EMS agencies need to prove the clinical value of the patient care they are delivering within the community paramedic model. Part of this process involves developing evidence-based practice for EMS in the integrated healthcare environment. This workshop will outline research methods, data capture, and useful metrics related to program funding and patient outcomes. Objectives will include: research methodologies; data retrieval strategies and informatics; outcome measurements; and development of an integrative healthcare research agenda. This workshop has been developed by the Prehospital Care Research Forum (PCRF) at UCLA, which has educated more than 500 individuals in prehospital care research over the last 15 years.
