Mobile Healthcare

Mobile Healthcare, commonly known as Community Paramedicine, is a form of community-based healthcare that allows specially trained Paramedics to function in expanded roles as primary care extenders, educators and patient advocates for underserved and high risk patients. 

Unlike healthcare in the traditional setting, Mobile Healthcare is offered in an alternative practice setting, usually in the patient’s home, and has proven to be a more cost-effective and efficient method of delivering patient care.

MedEx’s Mobile Healthcare solution can help reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital readmissions, improve clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, and decrease burdensome costs for the patient and healthcare organizations.
