In support of the overall Allina Mission of providing exceptional care and restoring health, Colin Brown, critical care paramedic for Allina Health EMS (AHEMS), worked with Dr. Andrew Burgdorf of the Allina Medical Clinic – Buffalo Crossroads to lead a medical mission trip to Jamaica
this past month.
Six AHEMS clinicians supported a total team of twelve which also included RN's a pharmacist and pharmacy technician. This allowed for a mobile clinic and pharmacy to visit three impoverished areas outside of the Montego Bay; Copse, Burnt Savanna and Flankers. The team provided
detailed assessments and long-term care plans to 200 patients and the pharmacy prescribed 3,500 medications to treat conditions such as infections, diabetes and hypertension.
Mission Jamaica sponsored the trip and scholarships were available from Allina Health to help fund the mission trip. Prior to the trip, our AHEMS team helped to coordinate the collection of roll-on deodorant and toothpaste to help hand out at the clinics at our EMS bases. Plans are
underway for another trip in 2020.
A new year has brought new opportunities to Allina Health EMS. Our research team had the honor of presenting research studies conducted over the past year at the National Association of EMS Physician's (NAEMSP) conference. Lori Boland, Principal Research Scientist for
AHEMS, and Morgan Anderson, Epidemiologist for ImageTrend software company, presented on three different studies.
Our research team also includes physicians, quality analysts, paramedics and data analysts, whose body of work includes cardiac arrest care, EMS provider well-being, trends in naloxone use and pre-hospital recognition of sepsis. Evidence based research
provides the basis for changes to our patient care protocols, improvements to our EMS providers work environment to serve our patients and communities.
The new year brings about new opportunities! As we continue to grow, we are looking for new faces to become a part of our team.
