    7/14/015 - TRIP and Wisconsin Stars of Life

    in Caregiving

    This webcast of Wisconsin EMS Live was recorded on Tuesday, July 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time.  The live broadcast discussed TRIP and Stars of Life 2015. 


    TRIP stands for Tax Refund Intercept Program. Since an ambulance service can't do a credit check when being dispatched to a person's 911 call, some patients unfortunately don't pay their ambulance bill even after the insurance company has sent the check directly to them for that purpose.  This leaves the ambulance service in a bad situation unable to collect on services rendered, meet its own financial obligations, and reinvest those funds in its operation, equipment and staff.  Some of Wisconsin's largest ambulance services are writing off each year $500,000 to one-million dollars in noncollectable debt.


    TRIP recently passed the Wisconsin legislature and is simply awaiting Governor Scott Walker's signature.


    In the meantime, we need to prepare ambulance service management not familiar with TRIP, explain how it works, and is used as another option to collections when other attempts have failed.  With Governor Walker's signature, it opens the option of TRIP to all Wisconsin ambulance services under contract with a municipality to provide 911 service.  TRIP cannot be used for inter-facility transfers or patients with Medicare or Medicaid insurance coverage.


    Wisconsin EMS Live program guests who discussed TRIP and answered questions include:  From The Stark Collection Agency in Madison, Pauline Kussart, and from Valders Ambulance, Director Jay Steuer.


    The latter half of the 60 minute program is dedicated to discussing Wisconsin Stars of Life 2015 with committee members Larry Knuth, a 2009 Star recipient himself, and Linda Wiedmann.  The event is to recognize Wisconsin's best EMTs and Paramedics as nominated by their respective departments.

    1/26/2016 EMS Training: "Flipping the Classroom"

    in Caregiving

    This live webcast of EMS Live in Wisconsin was recorded on Tuesday, January 26, 2016.


    Our guests included two individuals with Lifestar EMS in West Bend, WI - Assistant Training Coordinator Tyler Christifulli and Field Training Educator Sam Ireland.  They discussed how they have successfully been using field educators at their base locations, and also sending out to staff pre-training podcasts to encourage education and discussion. They call their program, "Flipping the classroom".


    Lifestar's approach to EMS education included the following:


    Identifying the epidemic of bad teaching practices that surround EMS.



    Using old power points
    Strict outlines
    Crowded slides


    What has Lifestar done to reinvent the way we approach education?



    Field Educators
    White boards
    Flipping the classroom
    Simplified power points and flip chart


    The techniques of running a good simulation.



    You don't need expensive equipment to run a good sim
    Video recording and critique playback
    Always succeed in simulations
    Takes a lot of preparation to run an efficient and dynamic simulation.


    To view and listen to the February 2016 pre-training podcast, "Patterns, Pathways, and Pain", as an example, completed by Lifestar EMS, click here.


    Join co-hosts Chris Anderson, Joe Covelli, Patrick Ryan, Dan Williams and call-in guests and live listeners for 40-minutes of conversation about emergency medical services and the ambulance industry in Wisconsin the second and fourth Tuesday every month.
