A closer look at our community paramedicine program

November 17, 2015 § Leave a comment

Boston’s NPR station WBUR recently reported on the Commonwealth Care Alliance/EasCare mobile integrated health program. The story, which contains interviews with a Commonwealth Care Alliance member and an EasCare paramedic, describes community paramedicine as “part of the medical system’s wider push to improve care and reduce costs by keeping people out of emergency rooms.”

In the piece, Toyin Ajayi, MD, Commonwealth Care Alliance’s Chief of Medical Services, explains that paramedicine allows Commonwealth Care Alliance to meet our members’ request to receive care in the home whenever possible. Paramedics, she says, are ideal for providing in-home care because they are “highly skilled, they are mobile, they are used to taking care of people in the community.”
