This pilot will evolve best practices for mobile telemedicine by telemedics in the field, bonding communications and data with documented patients, toward an unprecedented standard of emergency care.

The statistics are harsh – and they document failure – this legacy system cries out for VEI (Very Early Intervention) by a healthcare professional, as the optimal human partner.
Paramedics are emerging as the footsoldiers of community healthcare, ready for deployment and duties that are not yet fully defined. For too long they have been underpaid and exploited, with shifts and workloads that are as exhausting as they can be harrowing.
The cellular revolution enables widespread telemedicine, delivered from secure medical networks. Field telemedics as communications officers will rationalize EMS, granting patients ownership, and a business environment that brings emergency support and telemedicine to all healthcare professionals.
In this proposed pilot project up to 300,000 people could gain access to EMS fully ten minutes earlier than at present, with almost no capital cost or implementation wait. The densely populated city core of Vancouver offers benefits of scale within an educational model for field paramedicine.
This revolutionary stroke neuro-protectant needs to be onsite and in the fridge. Right there in the field station.
Paramedicine has to be distributed and diversified, and it needs fixed territories, protocols and responsibilities. When architected together – the fabric is community health.
Block EMS creates a distribution template on which to build out community health services in cities. How can Block EMS be funded for highly populated city blocks?
Defining the structure and role of EMS is required before we can integrate paramedicine and its practitioners.
A summary of evidence that provides background and research perspective for the implementation of paramedicine in community, i.e., the expanded roles and scopes of paramedics.

A team of three EMRs supervised by one paramedic can protect 1000+ people for less than $20 each per month, with early intervention of 3-5 minutes.
This document underwrites the need for Mobile Health Services (MHS)
“Maybe the best approach is not sending firefighters, not sending ambulances, but sending a community paramedic to deal with those health-care needs.”
Paramedicine is the unique domain of practice that represents the intersection of health care, public health, and public safety.
Early intervention within 3-5 minutes can be achieved in cities using onsite paramedics, as block EMS anchors community health, rationalizes emergency vehicle deployment, and extends a much higher level of life and injury protection for residents and workers.
