Emergency Medical Services have always been a struggle among the competing interests of patients, employees, and budgets; but this isn’t a zero-sum game. Strengthening any leg of this ‘triple aim’ can facilitate growth in each of the others. This year has seen some extraordinary efforts by healthcare providers to improve the outcomes of patients even as their agencies have absorbed huge financial blows. The danger, however, in this symbiotic relationship is that if any one of these goals gets too far out of balance, the others will also suffer.
The United States has always had an identity disorder when it comes to financing EMS. Is it public safety, public health, or can it be for-profit? The needs, size, and expectations of the community often dictate the model they will employ. While there is no ideal strategy that fits every jurisdiction, there is a common thread requiring efficiency in operations between them all. For many of the more than 23,000 EMS systems in the US this year, a dynamic allocation of response resources will make the difference in their unusually tight budget.
This webinar will explore the potential benefits of employing a dynamic deployment strategy and explain how they can be realized.
