STRATEGIC CHALLENGESThe EMT is frequently the first or second contact with whom AMR customers, especially patients, have interaction.

With healthcare reform, regulatory changes, and changing reimbursement, the EMT profession is evolving. The EMT must recognize that an expansion of his/her role is necessary to meet the needs of those individuals served. The role now expands beyond the foundational work of providing compassionate and clinically competent care.

To provide successful response, all agency personnel must work together.In addition, the delivery of care is often provided to individuals who are afraid or even panicked. Further, service delivery is being provided in communities with increasingly diverse populations.Finally, changing technology requires the EMT to keep up-to-date with new ways of communicating, documenting and reporting.
