What is On-Line Medical Control?
On-Line Medical Control is the ability for EMS providers in the field to speak directly with a physician regarding critical patients, or when advice is needed for any patient. In order to safely give medical advice, physicians need to be fluent in the local protocols and policies. In order to achieve this, an On-Line Medical Control course was created. Physicians at the area hospitals must take the course and pass a test before they can begin answering the medical control phone.
The Collaborative Protocol App is available in both the Apple App Store and Marketplace under “NYS Collaborative EMS Protocols”
