Mobile integrated healthcare-community paramedicine (MIH-CP) is a new model of care that trains paramedics to deliver a broader range of services than traditional emergency response and transport of people to emergency departments (ED). Some MIH-CP programs serve senior citizens and/or younger persons with debilitating chronic conditions who are at risk of needing long-term care (LTC). This report summarizes the findings of a landscape analysis and presents four examples of MIH-CP programs that serve these persons.
