Mobile Integrated Health Community Paramedicine (MIH-CP)
Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) Concept
As the volume of calls that police, EMS, and fire respond to grows and grows, the types of complaints handled through public safety systems have changed. Public safety leaders and elected officials are learning more about the dynamic/overlap between public health, criminal justice, emergency medical services, fire suppression, and other “traditional public safety issues.” Implementing new types of response models to help meet our growing needs.
MIH Office Mission
- Improve the health of the community and individuals
- Achieve higher customer and provider satisfaction
