Purpose

The Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services (KBEMS) began the process of evaluating the feasibility of implementing a Community Paramedicine program for Kentucky in 2013.  Prior to that date, the National Association of State Emergency Medical Officials (NASEMO) and National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) encouraged state EMS Programs and State Offices of Rural Health to partner in exploring the Community Paramedicine concept. The intent was to relieve the potential healthcare provider shortage, particularly in rural areas, as well as prepare to meet the future demand on the healthcare system with the aging of the Baby Boomer Generation.
