What does R4407CP, CPI-U, MFP and AIF have to do with the ambulance industry?  Let’s talk increase in the National Medicare Ambulance Fee Schedule where more money based on inflation is a good thing.  But there’s a catch.  If we’re more efficient in our processes in EMS, how does that affect the final approval amounts for payment from Medicare?  When there seems to be more questions than answers about Medicare, that’s where the QMC EMS Board and Collar Podcast steps in to sort it all out.  We’re glad you joined us as we unravel the complexity of adjustments coming in 2020!

Who decided long ago that work has to be all work?  Surely, most of us in the working world do NEED to work but does it have to be all work and no fun?  I think not.  Today, in this Keynote episode of the QMC EMS|Board & Collar we explore having fun at work.  Yes, having fun.  Fun needs to be an essential element of every workplace but probably none more importantly than the public safety sector and for the sake of this podcast, EMS Professionals.  Our profession dictates stressful decisions be made quickly and in many cases, the scenario is life or death.  That's a lot to carry on our shoulders so when we return to the base after that bad call, there needs to be respite for the weary and that can come in many forms but one of the keys is simply, fun. Have FUN listening to this episode.

Have you taken the time to gaze outside your own EMS backyard or do you live in the world that there is only one way to get things done and that's your current way? This is an ever-changing industry and one that requires us to be open-minded and vigilant to that change.  Today, we take a look at what happens when you choose to wear blinders and how far it can place you behind the power curve as well as ways to combat this rut that many of us find ourselves in more often than we'd like to admit.  All this and more in this edition of the QMC EMS|Board & Collar.
