Community paramedicine is an emerging health care practice that provides follow-up and preventative services to those in need. The practice is becoming more widespread across the country, and usually includes people in rural areas and frequent 911 callers, often uninsured people with chronic conditions and with barriers to regular medical care. It is also being used with positive results in cases of drug overdoses.
