The National Rural Health Resource Center and the Paramedic Foundation have released a new guide for those intending to research, plan, implement, evaluate, or otherwise consider community paramedicine (CP) systems.
This resource includes a compilation of cited references that describe the impact of previously implemented CP initiatives. References include both the impact that CP has the potential to have or has been demonstrated to have on patients, health care systems, payers, health care provider organizations, health care practitioners, and others. It also reflects the impact that policy and health and medical practices have the potential or have been demonstrated to have on CP and its stakeholders.
Use this guide to review results as applicable to the initiative being considered and use the information to inform implementation.
The guide can be accessed here.
