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.
- Finding the best approach to engaging and selecting alternate destinations and a telemedicine partner.
- Obtaining Medical Director buy-in and engagement in the process.
- Obtaining community buy-in to the process.
- Developing alternate disposition eligibility protocols that meet both Medical Director and alternate destination partner requirements.
