Professor James Dunford

Emergency medical services (EMS) health-information technology provides novel opportunities to address population-health issues in real time. By harnessing cloud-based electronic health records, alerting systems, and gumshoe case management, James Dunford and the Resource Access Program’s community paramedics have created a successful way to assist the city’s most vulnerable individuals. This lecture will describe this innovative health-information technology and will explain its beneficial effects on health care in the region.
