Developing Programs, Standards, Policies, Onborarding, and Corporate Compliance

Programs for EMS Professionals

MedStar originated by the need to consult with EMS & Fire organizations on training and operational programs.  Having certified Fire Instructors, EVOC Instructor Trainers, Experience in teaching Train-the Trainer programs we filled a need that was not available to many smaller organizations. 

Developing a variety of programs in many ares for the ambulance industry has greatly improved operational needs, company efficiency, and certainly meet many compliance requirements for business and emergency services.  

Working with administrators on branding is also a uniquie aspect that MedStar Solutions has played a part of and has seen many other organizations follow suit in brining new a entitiy into the culture.
No matter how small or larger your operation is it certainly is wise to seek an outsiders view of how you are doing.  There are simple areas overlooked or minor enhancements that can help your efficiency or new training that helps your risk management.

  • Do you have the necessary areas of operation in place or are they active and doing what they are required to do?
  • Do you need help in establishing such programs and getting them off the ground?

Let's see what solutions we can bring to you.
 Incident Investigations 
Every agency/organization has had unexpected incidents that required an investigation. Whether the incident required the cause, fault, safety review, follow-up, disciplinary action, legal litigation, or lessons learned.

Utilizing a third-party service aids in the process of employment disputes and insurance policies.


Things happen, accidents occur, employees have disputes.  Some are minor and inconsequential.  Some are major or can cause significant litigation, cost, or loss of licensure.

Often it can be easier to have a third party handle an investigation to ensure there is no bias, special treatment, personal involvement, or lack of knowledge in determining the most appropriate outcome.

Commonly policies were not in place or programs developed to minimize risk or ensure proper review and follow-up.

How is your compliance and retention?

Optimizing your organization

The best-planned operation or just a small growing service can always use a fresh look at how things are going.

Bringing in consultants who have seen many operations and built new programs or plans can improve not only effectiveness but can aid in loss prevention, enhanced compliance, employee retention, and much more.

MedStar Solutions can review your current system, make recommendations and provide a variety of solutions to enhance your current administrative or operational practices.

Bringing you an outside view, looking in.

Consulting

A simple call away

MedStar Solutions can be set up on a retainer basis in order to save cost or be available for simple projects, advise, calls for single document add-ons, and a host of other projects that can be subcontracted out to use our experience with a minimal cost to your organization.  

Smaller situations can be handled remotely and completed over the phone or email.  

Of course we are happy to provide on-site services to optimize your needs and services.
Bringing one of our solutions specialists in the EMS industry to your location is the best way for us to see you in operation.  We can visit your site(s) to get a first-hand look at how you do things, systems you have in place, look at any manuals or areas that you care to be evaluated.  

A great way to learn about your company is talking with your employees.  They are the day-to-day workers and have great insight as to what they do and the tools to do it.  We can quickly identify if there are training issues, tool, their skill level, or other areas where simple improvements can help.  We can identify if there may be more management training needed or ideas to share.  With our management training, we can recognize if the information is to be constructive or not.  

From your site survey, we work together with your internal team to develop plans, priorities, and goals to set you up for success and develop standards, practices, and methods.  Often we see things you don't realize that a fresh look can identify and bring to you to discuss improvement.

Compliance

How compliant is your organization?

Compliance is a prevalent business concern, partly because of an ever-increasing number of regulations that require companies to be vigilant about maintaining a full understanding of their regulatory compliance requirements. Compliance is either a state of being in accordance with established guidelines or specifications or the process of becoming so.  The definition of compliance can also encompass efforts to ensure that organizations are abiding by industry regulations, state and local laws, and government legislation.
