Through strong public-private partnerships, jurisdictions can offer high-quality service, often at lower costs than working independently. Tiered response systems are proven to work effectively with EMD, medical direction oversight and quality improvement validation. Furthermore, integration of public and private resources can lead to refined deployment and improved system status plans, resulting in more cost-effectiveness, system sustainability and better response times overall.
Additional benefits can include the following:
- Provide patient-centric care with the most appropriate scope of practice
- Appropriate utilization of limited emergency resources
