On November 22nd, the second annual EMS Education Day seminar takes place at Monhonk Mountain House in New Paltz. This year’s theme is dedicated to the changing role of EMS in healthcare. The article highlights community paramedicine in particular as being a way to improve the quality and coordination of patient care.

Community paramedicine is a new and evolving model of community-based healthcare, in which paramedics, working with doctors, hospitals and other practitioners, use mobile resources to provide non-emergency healthcare services to patients in their own homes and other non-hospital locations to prevent or improve medical conditions so the patients don’t have to go to the hospital.

NYMIHA‘s founder, Dr. Kevin Munjal, will be giving a presentation on community paramedicine and its ability to decrease cost, provide patient-centered treatment, reduce unnecessary emergency room visits, and prevent emergencies before they happen. NYMIHA is committed to exploring ways to expand the role of EMS in New York and overcoming the barriers that hinder the integration of EMS into the healthcare system.

The seminar is sponsored by HealthAlliance of Hudson Valley which aims to improve quality of care in the Hudson Valley area and integrate the use of advanced technology. To learn more visit their website at http://www.hahv.org.
