In case you missed it. Today Ferno announced the COOLEST product to hit the market in years. The iNX is a patient transport system. This is not your ordinary COT.  No it is the way we will make EMS future proof. This product culminates years of research. Ferno is truly leading the way in this area. Guess what fans, this cot locks into our normal cot interface and will reduce your lifting to ZERO. Yes…zero. I have used this cot and it works flawless. I am truly impressed with what Ferno has done for us in the EMS industry.

EMS Garage Episode 181: EMS Today 2 Community Paramedic

In this episode of the EMS Garage Podcast hosts Chris Montera and Anne Robinson Montera are joined by EMS educator and researcher Baxter Larmon from UCLA. Also on the panel is Carissa Caramanis O’Brien health care social media expert and consultant, as well as director of social media for Aetna. Baxter talks about the impetus to improve healthcare for the people of California with an initiative to add a community paramedic or mobile integrated healthcare program to that state’s EMS laws.

Carissa also brings up how using social media channels to listen to voices for change in healthcare. While channels like Twitter are limited to pushing out 140 characters in a post, there are many more words that can come back in response to a post and these various voices and points of view provide the information to give direction to change.
