E. Improving Transitions of Care through EMS Partnerships

Emergency medical services (EMS) and aging services providers share a common mission to provide high-quality services to older adults. Yet, transitions of care often suffer because these two providers only interact during times of crisis when both are under tremendous pressure. During this session, an EMS professional and the top executive of a senior living organization will discuss how aging services and EMS providers can improve care transitions by learning to be collaborative and transparent. Presenters will review past, current, and emerging EMS models, explain how these models impact aging services, and offer best practices for working with EMS providers to improve care transitions.
