Updated UCSF Evaluation of the Community Paramedicine Pilot Program Now Available
Earlier this week, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) released an update of the required evaluation report of the OSHPD Health Workforce Pilot Project focused on community paramedicine. There are currently fourteen pilot programs operating throughout California testing seven community paramedicine concepts, including post-discharge – short-term follow-up, frequent EMS users, DOT for TB patients, hospice, alternate destination – mental health, alternate destination – urgent care centers, and alternate destination – sobering centers. The project began in 2014, and this updated evaluation report analyzes data collected from the pilot programs through September 2017. The updated evaluation report is available here.
