    Community Care Paramedic Program CCPP

    emsWith the increasing cost and demand for health care, Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agencies across the country are thinking outside the box, and seeking ways to decrease cost and better serve their communities. One emerging practice found to be helpful is the creation of Community Care Paramedic Programs (CCPP). These Programs have been initiated all over the United States. Not only have these programs resulted in a decrease in medical costs, but they have improved the health of those participating in the areas where they have been utilized. Currently, there are several EMS agencies in North Carolina utilizing CCPPs. The programs are created based on the specific community needs and available resources. With the diversity of every state, county, and community no two CCPPs will be the same.
