Peoria Fire-Medical
Ideal Ambulance Service Model

Private sector partner would support a Peoria CON with shared responsibilities

The City would assume transportation of all Advanced Life Support (ALS) transports and bill for same

Private Sector partner would assume transportation of all Basic Life Support transports (BLS)

Both entities would provide backup services to each other
Public/Private Partnerships

Application Submitted

Administrative Review

Substantive Review (Current phase for COP)

“Proper and Fit” Approval By DHS

Public Comment Period

Intervener – To Administrative Hearing

No Intervener – To the Director of ADHS

Director of ADHS Has The Final Say



The CON Process

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) requires a specific form of business license to provide and bill for ambulances services. This is known as the Certificate of Necessity

Requires a lengthy application, public hearing, possible administrative hearing and approval by the Director of ADHS

Certificate of Necessity (CON)

A Number Of Municipalities Are Reconsidering Their Long-Term Approach To Ambulance Transportation Services

Concerns

Long-Term Stability

Lack Of Options For Service

Local Municipalities Have Applied For, and Been Granted, Certificates of Necessity (CON)


Current Status

Contract with Rural Metro (PMT) To Provide Ambulance Transportation Services

Contract Extended thru February 2016


Current Status

Recent Ambulance Industry Decisions

Peoria Fire-Medical Is The First Responder, Providing Both ALS and BLS Medical Care.

Private Ambulance Will Transport ALS Patients With A Peoria Fire-Medical Paramedic Maintaining Patient Control In The Ambulance.

Private Ambulance Will Transport Most BLS Patients Without Peoria Fire-Medical Personnel Maintaining Control.

Current Model

Paramedic / EMT

Paramedic / Paramedic

Paramedic / Nurse

Paramedic / Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant

States That Have Legislation -
Or Are Considering Reimbursement For MIHC Services

Growing Trends of
Re-Admissions


20 State Survey Including Arizona:

20% Of All Hospital Discharges Come Back To
The Hospital ED Within 30 Days

65 and Older Most Likely To Be Re-Admitted

18 to 44 Year-Olds Had Highest Number of ED Visits

89% Of Revisits To The ED Had The Same
Primary Diagnosis As The Initial Visit

Growing Trend of Re-Admissions

Summary

Continue with CON Application Status

Continue to communicate with the private sector with an eye out for collaborative partnerships

Continue to refine the financial aspects of providing ambulance service and provide regular updates to the Council.
