Session 6: The Dark Side of Community Paramedicine: Liability and Risk Management in Mobile Integrated Healthcare

Time: 11:15AM to 12:30PM | Track: Policy, Reimbursement & Compliance | Presenter: Doug Wolfberg, Page, Wolfberg & Wirth

Community Paramedicine programs have generally developed faster than laws and regulations regulating mobile integrated healthcare. Some programs have become fully operational without fully considering the potential for legal liability. We can’t necessarily count on the same legal protections for a community paramedicine visit that may apply to a prehospital emergency 911 call. This session will address 5 specific strategies on how to manage and reduce liability in community paramedicine programs, and will also address the importance of compliant contracting in MIH programs.
