From the Purpose of This Document: "This resource document has been developed by the Federal Interagency Committee on Emergency Medical Services (FICEMS) and its partners to provide information to EMS [Emergency Medical Services] and 911 organizations exploring the possibility of meeting unmet healthcare needs of their patients and communities through telemedicine. This document does not provide operational directives. However, readers will find telemedicine program design concepts and considerations, as well as suggestions for identifying potential strategic community partnerships that could bolster program development. The intent is to provide EMS and 911 organizations with an understanding of opportunities to leverage telemedicine as a pathway for providing patients with quality and cost-efficient care at the right place and the right time."
