Local Spotlight: Flagler County Community Paramedicine Program

from By Kristin McCabe-Kline, MD, FACEP, FAAEM

Launched on April 1, the Flagler County Community Paramedicine program seeks to identify and assist high utilizers of EMS services. Frequent home visits, patient education, and medication reconciliation are all key components of the assistance effort. With the leadership and support of Chief Don Petito, this program was approved for funding by the Flagler County Board of Commissioners during the summer of 2017 and diligent efforts have been dedicated to the design and structure since that time.

The Community Paramedic facilitates communication amongst providers across the continuum of care, including primary care physicians, specialists, assisted living and skilled nursing staff, home health agencies, palliative care and hospice, as well as social workers and case managers in the Emergency Department and throughout the hospital. The inaugural Flagler County Community Paramedic is Ms. Caryn Prather. more
