Grant of up to $4,000 to an Oregon hospital partnering with an emergency medical services agency to improve the coordination of rural healthcare services. Funding may be used to support new projects or for project expansion. Interested partners should propose work that seeks to improve targeted outcomes by strengthening the coordination between pre-hospital and hospital providers, policies and/or programs.
The Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) is pleased to offer a grant opportunity for one Oregon Critical Access Hospital (CAH) and a partner Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agency.
Proposals may target outcomes for care that is transferred from pre-hospital EMS to hospital providers, or from hospital providers to an EMS-based program, such as a Community Paramedic. Projects should propose to drive team-oriented care improvement; improve service integration; reduce barriers to care or capacity gaps; and/or advance the use of policy or program tools to improve outcomes for patients transferred between pre-hospital and hospital environments.
Work may target cases that are transferred from pre-hospital EMS to hospital providers, or from hospital providers to EMS-based care, such as a Community Paramedic or Mobil Integrated Health program. All proposed work must identify a minimum of two targeted improvement measures with baseline benchmarks.
