Dignity Health, Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) has partnered with Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority (CAFMA) to launch a Community Paramedicine program to serve the Quad-Cities area.
The program is designed to assist patients discharged from a YRMC facility who are high-risk for readmission. It is not uncommon for a patient discharged from the hospital to face challenges with self-care, follow-up care, and/or support once they return home. These challenges can impede the healing process which may result in readmission to the hospital. The goal of the new program is to minimize readmissions through personalized follow-up and preventative care. The enrollment process for the Community Paramedicine program occurs when the patient is being discharged from a Dignity Health, Yavapai Regional Medical Center hospital.
The Community Paramedicine program will be a great resource for those who need a little help after returning home from a hospital stay. This is the first program of its kind in the Quad-Cities area, and demonstrates the strong partnership between Dignity Health, Yavapai Regional Medical Center and Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority.
