MFPD’s Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) division, known as Mehlville Mobile, is currently staffed with two full-time Community Paramedics. Since its launch in 2018, the essential aims of Mehlville Mobile remain the same: to reduce 911 calls, provide people a better care experience, help reduce healthcare costs, and improve the overall health and quality of life for the community.
Mehlville Mobile initially focused on reducing non-emergency use of the 911 system by enrolling individuals in a program to help better manage their healthcare and maintain their independence. The Mehlville Mobile Comprehensive Care program has achieved an 80% reduction in 911 calls while receiving high marks for improving patients’ quality of life.
Mehlville Mobile Community Paramedics also oversee implementation of ET3 (Emergency Triage, Treat and Transport), a Medicare-funded program that allows some patients who call 911 the option of transport to an urgent care or treatment-in-place by a doctor or nurse practitioner via telehealth.
Leave Behind Narcan
The Leave Behind Narcan program allows EMS personnel to directly give naloxone to the people who need it the most. Following patient care and while on the scene with the patient, Community Paramedics may offer a Leave Behind Narcan kit as well as information and resources for recovery help.
Community CPR Classes (Coming Soon)
Mehlville Mobile Community Paramedics train individuals to respond to, and prepare for, emergencies through hands-only CPR. Mehlville Mobile will soon be offering First On the Scene courses which includes Activating the 911 System and Stop the Bleed.
