For nearly 75 million people living in rural areas of the United States, health care needs far outnumber health care options. These communities already include disproportionate numbers of elderly citizens, immigrants, impoverished families and those in poor health.
Residents often must travel great distances—incurring great expenses—to receive even the most basic care. Or worse, they receive no care at all.
Over the past decade, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) has piloted a new role, most often referred to as the Community Paramedic (CP). Community Paramedics close the gap by expanding the role of EMS personnel.
