SORT BY Relevancy
When thinking about rural EMS systems compared to an urban setting. Does the rural setting have certain advantages? What about disadvantages? Issues like available resources, transport times, volunteers, skills frequency and others can play a role in overall patient care.
So what are your thoughts? Do these two systems differ? Are they similar enough not to matter in the long run?

Recent two FDNY EMS Paramedics have been accused with faking an ambyulance call report after some confusion with a DNR. We all know that the Call Report is a legal document. But did these medics act on compassion based on the patients and family wishes? Or did they make such a grave error as to cost them their jobs and even jail time?
Join us for a special live show and give your thoughts on the topic.
Here is a link to the article in the Staten Island Advance. It should get your juices flowing for sure.

Iron Bow's Dan Klanderman shares his thoughts about telemedicine and telehealth and how organizations are innovatively solving the issue of the "last mile" in rural areas. Many in America not only do not enjoy high-speed broadband access, but many also do not have any Internet access at all, but smartphones and mobile connectivity are creating opportunities for those people to take advantage of some telehealth solutions today.

EMS Protocol Influences on Patient Care
Live from the show floor at FDIC 2015, EMS Editor Mike McEvoy leads a panel discussion with Drs. Jim Augustine (EMS Medical Director for services in Ohio, Atlanta, and Florida) and Sabina Braithwaite (Associate Medical Director Metro Oklahoma City/Tulsa and EMS Medical Director Wichita/Sedgwick County, KS) on transforming the EMS environment of care. This panel focuses on protocols and clinical aspects of care affecting safe EMS care during transport and potential solutions for the future.

Get ready for another rapid fire episode where anything goes. EMS is a great professional with lots of topics to discus and many opinions to be heard. Come listen to the latest in EMS culture and join in the conversation via phone or chat, or just listen in as Jim, Josh and Dave give their take on the latest in EMS.
Is EMS the stepping stone to other professions? Do providers leave EMS to pursue better career options when they find so few in EMS. Sometimes its not about pay. Its can be about career movement, job satisfaction and options for the long haul.
Is teaching and supervisory positions the only rungs in the ladder?
What do you think has the constant revolving door in EMS spinning?
Join us tonight for the Office Hours opinion and some thoughts on how to keep providers who bring experinece to the field.
This program was dedicated to discussing Wisconsin First Responder legislation currently moving through the State Capitol in Madison. Bills in the Senate and Assembly would allow a First Responder to be considered a legal ambulance crew member.
We'll also touch on ICD-10 coding that starts October 1, 2015, and expands what's called "condition codes". The new takeaway point with moving to ICD-10 is ambulance personnel documentation is more important than ever before to receive appropriate Medicare reimbursement.
In addition, we'll also discuss with attorney Wendy Arends from Godfrey and Kahn, Madison, Medicare fraud. Sometimes what you don't know can hurt you - and in this case no one wants to see ambulance servies audited or cited for wrong doing by CMS (Centers for Mecdiare and Medicaid Services) for mistakes or fraudulent billing.
We also announced our new webcast name change from "Wisconsin EMS Live" to something else to "EMS Live in Wisconsin", and the reason why.
Co-hosts included Chris Andersen, Joe Covelli, Patrick Ryan and Dan Williams.
