Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Project

National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center)

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) assists communities with ensuring access to, and availability of, emergency care. The DRCHSD Program goal is to help create a local coordinate system of care that includes community joint partners working in collaboration with first responders and leaders for our participating hospitals and/or clinics.

To support this goal, the DRCHSD Program will provide virtual technical assistance (TA) services to participating hospitals and/or clinics to help their EMS providers in identifying opportunities for improvements, which includes needed resources to fill gaps in local clinical services and better processes that enhance coordination of services.

This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under grant number U65RH31261, Delta Region Health Systems Development, $8,000,000 (0% financed with nongovernmental sources).
