Serving Those Who Served Our Country: How an MIH and VA Hospital Partnership Helps Veterans-Jason Schaak
Is your organization properly caring for those who have served our country? This presentation will demonstrate how an EMS agency can provide comprehensive care to the veteran population within their community. This course will teach attendees how to establish a targeted outreach program using GIS, customize their ePCR to identify veterans and their medical homes, refer them to MIH services, and provide tele-health home doctor visits.
1. Identify the benefits of veteran outreach and the provision of specialty services within a community.
2. Apply custom EPCR changes that will allow them to identify veterans, their preferred hospital (medical home), and refer them to MIH services (within their community or provided through the VA).
3. Evaluate the benefits of a tele-health system to provide doctor/specialist visits to veterans or residents within a community.
