Community Paramedicine (CP) is about helping community members who wish to remain at home safely, and ensure they receive the care they need. The program works by having a patient referred to the paramedic services through a caregiver, hospital, physician, or by self sign-up.

The CP program is an innovative and evolving model of community-based healthcare designed to provide more effective and efficient services at a lower cost. This allows paramedics to function outside their traditional emergency response and transport roles to help facilitate more appropriate use of emergency care resources while enhancing access to primary care for medically underserved populations.

Services include:

  • Patient assessments
  • Vital signs assessment
  • Cardiac monitoring
  • Blood glucose testing
  • Point of care blood testing
  • Point of care urinalysis
  • Coagulation testing
  • Chronic disease management, particularly for COPD, CHF, and diabetes
  • Vaccinations
  • Assessment of high utilization users of 911/ED services
  • Remote patient monitoring services
