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.
Paramedicine has to be distributed and diversified, and it needs fixed territories, protocols and responsibilities. When architected together – the fabric is community health.
Defining the structure and role of EMS is required before we can integrate paramedicine and its practitioners.

Medical payers are pivoting from treatment claims to outcomes, and early intervention will certainly influence outcomes. Onsite paramedics may be compensated for successful and timely treatments – a possible major source of their funding.
Using the simplest strategy possible, onsite paramedics can reliably deliver very early intervention in 3 to 5 minutes, with all the priceless benefits that brings to health care.
The sky’s the limit for high rise construction it seems, around the world. They are tall, graceful, and of course green. But they have one dirty little secret, which is about to be cleaned up.
The Tandem AED/EMS strategy has an in-house AED delivering its lifesaving treatment well within four minutes. EMS then arrives some minutes later to consolidate the rescue.
Living or working in a high-rise just about eliminates your chance of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest.
A high-tech system that allows physicians to receive heart data from paramedics in the field is now live at Stanford Hospital & Clinics.
Efforts to improve survival should focus on the prompt delivery of medical interventions. CPR and AEDs both need human partners.
