Getting caught up, I had the chance to talk with Ari Breslauer recently about a very successful partnership between a hospice agency and a start-up MIH program. Some really great takeaways about defining and articulating value in ways that help answer everyone’s concerns from the patients to the clinicians to the payers
Another episode getting ready to drop. Hospice partnerships and end-of-life-care that matters are a huge opportunity for #MIHCP #communityparamedic programs.
James Mason is one of those folks who has seen, done, and touched a whole bunch of different things, done them well, and then figured out how to integrate the pieces into something even bigger. In October 2017 as a QIN/QIO consultant he led a CMS Special Innovation Project (SIP) for “Community Paramedicine, or simply “CP in WV”. and ever since has been involved in some capacity.
Coming this weekend! I spent some time talking with one of the folks responsible for a CMS funded #MIH #communityparamedic pilot. The blend of rural health, out of hospital care, and new roles for paramedics is helping define what is possible moving forward. Exciting stuff with a few elements of Indiana Jones like danger
Brian and I talked about his experience as a patient and examined some of that through his lens as a writer and storyteller – those critical skills of listening to other people’s stories and really hearing what they have to say. He wrote an article for the Guardian diving into the opioid crisis and a lot of what that article covered is vital for #communityparamedics to understand and incorporate. After this article came out, our #MIHCP program brought him in as a speaker and that turned out to be one of the best education days we have had. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/apr/28/opioid-epidemic-selects-white-victim-black-addict
Talking with author and educator Brian Broome about patient experience and how the way we listen makes all the difference.
Check out his article in The Guardian a few years ago that prompted our MIH program to bring him in as a speaker
Very timely discussion and a critical conversation by two EMS leaders

Welcome to the first episode of Integrated: the Community Paramedicine podcast. I’m talking with David Miller, a good friend and excellent medic. He’s had the opportunity to practice with two very different programs on opposite sides of the country and do a few other cool things along the way. Oh, and the rabbit, you have to hear about the rabbit.
