EMS on the Hill Day "On Message" with Officials in DC
April 23, 2014 - Run Time 13m:40s
Guest: Don Lundy, NAEMT President
The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) hosted hundreds of EMS professionals, including practitioners, managers, educators, and physicians on March 26, for the fifth annual EMS On The Hill Day in Washington, D.C.
Delegates from nearly all states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, met with their members of Congress to discuss the essential and cost-effective role of EMS in our nation’s changing healthcare system. The focus of the daylong event was to obtain support for legislation that addresses key challenges in delivering quality patient care, and to inform Congress of the benefit and cost-saving opportunities within EMS to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs through Mobile Integrated Healthcare (MIH) and Community Paramedicine (CP) programs.
According to NAEMT President Don Lundy, “EMS advocacy is not just for those in leadership positions… it’s for everyone in EMS who cares about the future of our profession”.
In this webcast we have a conversation with President Lundy and learn of outcomes from the March 26th EMS on the Hill event, as well as other initiatives NAEMT is working on to move our profession forward.
