Mobile Care Access Delivers
For decades, EMS organizations have understood the benefits of community paramedicine, but lacked the resources to develop and implement financially sustainable programs.
The Mobile Care Access program is the next step in the evolution of community paramedicine, connecting patients and paramedics with the power and flexibility of a mobile platform. This program, funded by health insurance plans, solves the problems that have previously prevented this highly effective treatment modality from being used to its full potential. Now nearly any EMS agency can have the community paramedicine program it’s always wanted.Learn More
High Impact Care forAt Risk Patients
Data demonstrates that Medicaid patients in care management programs for chronic diseases experience a high rate of improvement when receiving on site interventions from local paramedics. Effective program implementation can reduce non-emergency EMS and ER utilization by up to 60%.
Mobile Care Access is a structured program that provides a planned course of care and coaching, which then transitions to monthly monitoring.
MedAware Solutions conducts outreach campaigns to Medicaid patients who fit criteria designated by their health insurance plan. The free program is introduced, and willing members are enrolled. Upon enrollment, the member is assigned to a local EMS Partner.
A community paramedic will connect with the newly enrolled member to assess their medical status in their home and develop a care plan. Care may be delivered in person, by phone or through telehealth with our proprietary mobile application mViva©.
The duration of a care plan is typically 60-90 days. Upon successful completion of the plan, the member is promoted to monthly monitoring to ensure long term success.

EMS Program Implementation
MedAware Solutions recognizes that some agencies will hit the ground running with an existing community paramedicine program, and some will require assistance to develop one. Whatever level of assistance an EMS partner needs to launch, our team is ready to provide the tools and expertise.
MedAware Solutions has in-house expertise with decades of firsthand experience in emergency medical services and paramedicine. The robust implementation blueprint we developed for EMS partner agencies is ready to deploy out of the box, and includes the program infrastructure, an established workload, and a guaranteed payer. We also provide the mobile medical platform the program runs on.
Mobile Care Access comes with a customizable program template containing policies, procedures and protocols to ensure all patients receive the same level of care. MedAware Solutions also collaborates with each EMS agency to develop a quality management system to monitor results.
Community Stakeholder Engagement
EMS agencies launching a new community paramedicine program also learn how to engage the medical community, community resources, and local lawmakers for collaboration and support.
Mobile Care Access Functional Overview
Mobile Care Access is a complex system with a simple goal. This is a high level overview of how all the pieces fit together, and where EMS fits.
Mobile Care Access provides proactive care through coordinated partnerships, which reduces costs and improves patient outcomes. The collaboration process is:
- MedAware Solutions secures agreements with health insurance plans
- Insurance plans identify qualified patients
- MedAware Solutions conducts outreach and enrollment
- Members enrolled are matched with a local EMS partner
- EMS partners provide direct patient care
- EMS partners are reimbursed per patient visit
There are a few revenue generation points in the overall system. For EMS partners, the payer reimburses the EMS agency on a per patient, per visit basis. This helps build an alternate revenue stream that is scalable in the long term.
Training and Certification
Mobile Care Access EMS
We recognize that not all EMS organizations have CP trained paramedics on staff, and understand obtaining the certification is a lengthy process.
The Mobile Care Access program does not require paramedics to have a full CP-C designation. However, we do require that affiliated paramedics have received training in community paramedicine.
Introduction to Community Paramedicine is the training course we offer free to our EMS partners. It was developed by EMS/CP professionals to prepare paramedics with an understanding of the community paramedicine scope of work before they begin treating Mobile Care Access patients.
- 60 hours virtual instruction
- 10 weeks / 1 day per week / 6 hours per day
- Live stream with instructor (not recorded)
- Free for paramedics joining Mobile Care Access
This class is not required for any paramedics already trained and/or certified in community paramedicine. It is provided for EMS professionals who need an understanding of the additional responsibility before treating Mobile Care Access patients.
This class was developed with the intent of preparing paramedics for the national ISBC exam, should they choose to pursue certification.
Community paramedicine is unique to each state. MedAware Solutions ensures the Community Paramedic program meets the criteria in every state Mobile Access Care operates in. When working with new EMS partners, we customize the program to address these variables.
