Community Paramedics: “Mobile Integrated Healthcare Practice”

From RRStar:

A partnership between the Rockford Fire Department and OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center will reinvent “the house call,” officials said today in unveiling a new community medical outreach program.

They call it the Mobile Integrated Healthcare Practice, and it’s designed to help patients understand their medical conditions and health care instructions. The new program targets those in the population who repeatedly call 911 and use the hospital’s emergency room to address chronic illnesses, or are elderly and either frail or have physical limitations, officials said.
