Mobile Integrated Healthcare (MIH)

In any healthcare system, there is a set of patients who suffer from challenging, chronic illnesses. They often lack access to reliable primary care and utilize emergency services at a higher rate than average, especially when the nearest clinic may be dozens of miles away. Out of necessity, the only way these patients access healthcare is by seeking treatment at an emergency department.

Unfortunately, 911 ambulance transports and emergency department visits place additional financial burdens on patients while simultaneously utilizing limited emergency resources.

Under Mobile Integrated Healthcare, there is no need to call 911.

An MIH clinician (trained community paramedic) can treat you in

the home, if:

■ You were recently in the hospital for COVID-19 or other ongoing illness, and need follow-up

■ You are a new diabetic, have a hard time managing your diabetes (swings in blood sugar levels), have diabetic wounds or blood flow issues (swelling or pain in legs or other

limbs, etc.)

■ You have a heart illness (recent heart attack or stroke, congestive heart failure, recent open heart surgery, high blood pressure, pacemaker, etc.).

■ Your healthcare provider refers you to MIH

In-home treatments may include: 

■ Checking vitals, oxygen levels, blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate and more

 

■ Collecting blood and other labs

■ Electrocardiograms (EKGs) and ultrasounds

■ Starting and managing IVs, including COVID-19

infusions

■ Wound care

■ Providing education on your disease, medicines and treatment, e.g., insulin, oxygen, etc.

■ Providing education on supplies or devices used in your treatment, e.g., glucose monitor, nebulizer, etc.

■ Other risk assessments, as needed

Who Are MIH Clinicians?

MIH clinicians are community paramedics trained to provide healthcare in communities and patient homes. Healthcare providers and care teams can request in home care from MIH clinicians for their patients.

 

MIH clinicians drive SUVs instead of ambulances and wear similar uniforms. They have more training than EMTs and general community paramedics and are prepared and able to address general and critical healthcare needs.

Patients can also ask for MIH services by calling 1-573-438-8345, instead of 911— to avoid ambulance rides and hospital emergency room visits.

Access to Care

One of the biggest barriers to receiving care is being

able to access it. MIH removes that barrier by bringing

care to you, in the place where you are most likely to

get better most quickly — your home.

Community health workers support MIH clinicians

by scheduling in home visits with you and helping

find resources to meet both medical and non-

medical needs to keep you healthy.

 

There is an entire healthcare team in the background to support you through your treatment and recovery (MIH clinicians, doctors, nurse practitioners, community health workers, outreach workers, nurses, and more.
