Legislative Mobile Integrated Healthcare Workgroup

Public Act 17-146 §45 requires DPH, within available appropriations and in consultation with the Insurance and Social Services departments, to convene a working group to implement a mobile integrated health care program. The program must allow a paramedic to provide community-based health care (i.e., using patient-centered, mobile resources outside the hospital) within his or her scope of practice and make recommendations regarding non-emergency transportation by emergency medical services (EMS) providers.

Under the bill, the DPH commissioner must report the working group's findings and recommendations to the Human Services, Insurance, and Public Health committees.

The Legislative Report to the General Assembly was submitted to the Legislative on 3/1/2019.

Chair: Raffaella Coler, R.N., Med., Paramedic, Department of Public Heath, Office of Emergency Medical Services
