U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Office of Rural Health Policy. (2012). Community Paramedicine Evaluation Tool.
This document addresses the need for each community paramedicine program to define its system-specific health status benchmarks and performance indicators and to use a variety of community health and public health interventions to improve the community’s health status. It also addresses reducing the burden of illness, chronic disease, and injury as a community-wide public health problem, not strictly as a patient care issue.
