Job Description:

STRATEGICCHALLENGES The EMT is
frequently the first or second contact with whom AMR'
customers, especially patients, have interaction. As a result, the
EMT must be responsive and adaptable to meet customers'
expectations. The EMT must adapt to the changes in scope of
delivery and practices. This may require adapting to new delivery
protocols, or training curriculum to maintain
certification. An increasing challenge is
adapting to the changing nature of healthcare delivery in the
United States. With healthcare reform, regulatory changes, and
changing reimbursement, the EMT profession is evolving. The EMT
must recognize that an expansion of his/her role is necessary to
meet the needs of those individuals served. The role now expands
beyond the foundational work of providing compassionate and
clinically competent care. The EMT must consider the use of
appropriate facilities and understand the reimbursement structure
in order to transport the patient to the right facility and ensure
payment. The end result decreases customer stress, avoids care
delays due to reimbursement constraints, eliminates unnecessary
multiple patient transports, and increases customer satisfaction.
Growing economic pressures also require the EMT to think of his/her
actions and their financial impact. The EMT is
often the focal point for interaction with the fire department and
other service providers, as well as other responding agencies, such
as the police department. To provide successful response, all
agency personnel must work together. In
addition, the delivery of care is often provided to individuals who
are afraid or even panicked. Further, service delivery is being
provided in communities with increasingly diverse
populations. Finally, changing technology
requires the EMT to keep up-to-date with new ways of communicating,
documenting and reporting. KEY
