Best Practices in EMS Triage and Transport Destinations-Ed Racht et al.

Join Drs. Ed Racht, Stein Bronsky and Craig Manifold in their roundtable discussion of best practices and lessons learned in triaging and determining transport destinations of COVID-19 and other non-COVID emergency patients during the pandemic. Using a case-based approach, the webinar will discuss factors driving decision-making, and help prepare agencies and practitioners to implement new protocols for transport to alternate destinations or treatment-in-place.

CMS has recently implemented changes to the EMS payment model to reimburse for transport to alternate destinations during the pandemic. And several states are now reimbursing for treatment-in-place. But successful implementation of these enhanced services can be complicated.

  • Obtaining Medical Director buy-in and engagement in the process.
