Paramedic Chiefs of Canada – Revolutionizing EMS: New Models of Care to Address Changing Health Care Needs in the Age of COVID | January 21stJenny Abercrombie
Across Canada, access to appropriate health care is an ongoing challenge, and pressures within our health care system – wait times, hospital overcrowding, patient backlog – have only been intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. To address these challenges, integrated primary health care teams across the country are working to help patients receive the care they need in their homes and communities, where they are often happiest and healthiest.
In this virtual session, Matt Crossman, Vice President Operations, Medavie Health Services:
- Explored Mobile Integrated Health models at-work in communities across the country.
- Reviewed the evidence and data supporting these models and explore preliminary outcomes.
- Reviewed the challenges and opportunities ahead to create capacity for more community-based care during COVID.
Matt Crossman, Vice President, Operations, Medavie Health Services, is responsible for the delivery of paramedic services in Ontario, Western Canada, and Prince Edward Island. Prior to this, he was President and CEO of Ambulance New Brunswick. He was also previously General Manager of Island EMS and Medacom Atlantic.
