    PINNACLE POWER SEMINARS

    WHAT IS “HIGH VALUE EMS” AND WHY DOES IT MATTER TO ME?

    VIEW DESCRIPTION

    The expectations of the people you serve—patients, employees, healthcare partners, payers, regulators, medical directors, elected officials and members of the community—change on a mostly daily basis. The organizations that are members of the Academy of International Mobile Healthcare Integration (AIMHI) understand and embrace the challenges this brings; that’s why they are on the cutting edge of delivering and proving value to these important constituents in the dramatically changing EMS and healthcare environment.  

    This seminar will focus on key issues and trends that AIMHI members are effectively managing in their rapidly evolving delivery models, providing helpful tools and tips you can use to do the same in your community.   

    You will learn:

    • How to balance the clinical and operational needs of your organization
    • How to develop, propose and implement alternate payment models for EMS
    • Why it’s critical to understand today’s EMS workforce and issues such as employee engagement, FMLA, and aligning employee goals with organizational goals
    • To collect, analyze, and interpret data as a key element to process and clinical improvement
    • How to understand the value perspectives of organizational partners and develop metrics that demonstrate the current and potential value you provide

    Facilitated by Brenda Staffan, MIH Project Director for the Regional EMS Authority in Reno, Nevada; Brad Lee, MD, REMSA Medical Director; Matt Zavadsky, MS-HSA, president-elect of NAEMT and Director of Public Affairs at MedStar Mobile Healthcare in Fort Worth, Texas; Doug Hooten, President of AIMHI and CEO of MedStar Mobile Healthcare; Todd Stout, CEO of FirstWatch; Rob Lawrence, Chief Operating Officer of Richmond Ambulance Authority and Jonathan Washko, Assistant Vice President of CEMS at Northwell Health in New York.

    Sponsored by the Academy of International Mobile Healthcare Integration (AIMHI)

    MAIN CONFERENCE

    ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: HOW EMS CAN FIGHT THE OPIOID OVERDOSE CRISIS

    VIEW DESCRIPTION

    Opioid overdoses are now clearly one of the biggest public health threats facing this country, leading to more than 33,000 deaths in 2015 according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. EMS has a role to play beyond responding and administering naloxone. Whether it’s providing links to addiction treatments or sharing valuable EMS data with public health partners, agencies across the country are finding innovative ways to help address the problem and stop overdoses before they occur.

    In this roundtable discussion, leaders of EMS systems taking proactive approaches to addressing the opioid crisis, including the Richmond (Va.) Ambulance Authority, ProEMS in Cambridge, Mass., and Trinity EMS in New Hampshire, will share their successes and challenges. Members of the audience will be invited to tell their communities’ stories as well in an open and honest conversation of the role of EMS in halting the rise in overdose deaths.
