If you are a health care provider, public safety professional, care manager or social worker, you may refer someone into the UCHealth community paramedic program.
UCHealth community paramedics provide mobile, integrated health care services that are designed to reduce patient ER visits and hospital readmissions. Community paramedics ensure that patients who lack the ability to access health care services can get the care they need in a timely manner, no matter where they are.
Our community paramedics are trained, skilled health care clinicians with years of operational street knowledge, with expertise in the delivery of both emergent and non-emergent care. They are deeply trusted in the communities we serve across cultural, racial, age, gender, religious, and socioeconomic classes.
In addition to providing general in-home care, our community paramedics division offers these specialized programs:
- High 911 Utilizers
- Readmission Avoidance Program
- Hospice Revocation Avoidance Program
- Mental Health Partnership and Crisis Response Team (CRT)
- Immunization and outreach medical clinics
