Community Paramedicine/Mobile Integrated Healthcare Meeting Set August 14th

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) is inviting interested residents to attend a stakeholder meeting August 14 to introduce a healthcare approach known as “community paramedicine and mobile integrated healthcare.”

The meeting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cheyenne’s Little America Hotel and Resort in conjunction with the 44th Annual Wyoming Trauma Conference.

Meeting speakers will present the national and international history of community paramedicine and mobile integrated healthcare programs and discuss how to integrate public and private partnerships for improved health outcomes.

“In rural areas, access to some essential healthcare services can be tough,” said Andy Gienapp, WDH Office of Emergency Medical Services manager. “Potentially using emergency medical services volunteers and professionals in non-traditional roles may offer some help.”

The meeting is hosted by the WDH Office of Emergency Medical Services and the WDH Office of Rural Health. For more information or to register, please contact Beth Hollingworth in the WDH Office of Emergency Medical Services at 307-777-7955 or 1-888-228-8996. While there is a fee to attend the trauma conference, there is no cost to attend the August 14 stakeholder meeting.

    The state of Wyoming would not offer reciprocity in 2004 when I came to Wyoming with 20+ years of experience as a high performance NREMT-P. Until & unless that changes there will be a dearth of ALS service in Wyoming. At the time I was also an ACLS & PALS instructor. And the fact that Fremont County Commissioners will not support additional funding for ALS doesn't help.
