Kansas, like many states, faces significant challenges in delivering adequate health care services for all communities. One potential approach to addressing these challenges is leveraging community paramedics and other health care professionals in a broader care team that extends beyond the hospital or clinic. On Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024, KHI held an event examining key policy considerations for leveraging an expanded set of health care professionals with particular emphasis on state-level policies influencing community paramedicine programs. Policy topics included scope of practice, health care system integration, training requirements, funding and reimbursement.

This convening is part of the 2024 KHI Health Policy Educational Series — Bring It!
