CFD’s Mobile Integrated Healthcare (MIH) program is an innovative and evolving model of community-based, patient-centered healthcare designed to provide effective and efficient services to our community. MIH is a term often used interchangeably with Community Paramedicine (CP); however, MIH is broader, including services provided in the "out-of-hospital" environment.
Using a team-based approach, MIH allows EMS professionals to function outside of traditional roles by:
- Navigating citizens toward the appropriate level of care in a timely and cost-effective manner.
- Integrating services, both clinical and non-clinical, to meet our citizens' needs.
- Assessing and Educating citizens at-risk for hospital admission or re-admission and assist in the management of chronic disease.
