Redmond EMS announces two new programs that are focused on bringing healthcare into the community. Mobile Integrated Health and Community Paramedicine are two programs that will serve as an extension of an individual's care. Rather than waiting for a 911 call from an individual, Redmond EMS personnel would proactively call and visit individuals in the programs. These visits would enhance the continuum of care for those individuals, bridging the gap between their discharge from the hospital and their next follow up appointment. Although criteria for participation is different for each program, both programs focus on helping individuals with chronic medical conditions who are at high risk for being re-admitted to the hospital.
