System Assessment and Design
In the 1970, much of Oklahoma was still served by funeral home ambulances such as this "Combination Car" - in 10 minutes, it could transform from a hearse (top) into an ambulance (bottom)!
Modern EMS systems are much more effective. Medical technology has moved far past the "load and go" days when speed was our only tool. Today we can restart hearts, restore breathing, stop life-threatening hemorrhage and resuscitate asthmatic and diabetic children with a powerful arsenal of medications and treatments.
Developing an effective EMS system is not as simple as it was then, either. Each Community has different needs. We understand that basic fact, and we do not use "one size fits all" solutions.
Rogers EMS Consulting can assess the needs of your community and work with your leaders to identify all the options open to you. Our goal is always to help you craft a cost-effective system that will provide excellent care at a reasonable cost.
We can help you find savings and new revenue in your current operations. We can also help you find solutions you may not have previously considered feasible.
Our experienced staff has worked throughout the state of Oklahoma with every conceivable EMS arrangement, from urban "public utlilty systems" and large private ambulance services, through suburban police or fire/EMS combination EMS providers to the tried-and-true rural volunteer ambulance squads. We have compared the relative advantages of each of these many options for communities of various sizes. We have learned, sometimes through bitter experience, of the hidden political barriers and special considerations that must be factored in to each solution.
We believe that there is always a way to improve the existing system, and we can help you explore the options that may produce a better fit and a better system for your citizens. Our staff has tremendous depth of understanding of the legal and regulatory framework of Oklahoma EMS, and can advise you effectively on the practicality and propriety of various options.
We can provide a preliminary review of your current system and discuss some models that communities your size have found helpful, both in Oklahoma and in other states. We are eager to help you. Just give us a call at 405-326-2087!
