Innovative Partnership: Community Paramedic Program

Date: Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

In this webinar, participants learned about the unique partnerships behind an innovative community paramedic program in St. Paul, Minn. To reduce emergency calls and unnecessary hospital readmissions, specially trained paramedics visit homes of discharged patients to provide medication reconciliation, clinical and home assessments, and connections to community resources. Representatives from program partners, Regions Hospital and West Side Community Health Services, shared program details, lessons learned, and insights into the partnership’s success.

This webinar was sponsored by the National Partnership for the Health Care Safety Net — a collaborative project between America’s Essential Hospitals, the National Association of Community Health Centers, and the Department of Health Policy and Management at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. Funded by Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit, the National Partnership focuses on hospital and health center collaboration related to health policy and reform.
