When drawing up the plans for the MIH Team, a primary goal was set: to achieve accessible and equitable patient-centered care. MIH was originally created to help those impacted by the opioid epidemic but had to pivot during the COVID-19 pandemic to assist with the vaccination of vulnerable populations. After the vaccine became widely available, the MIH Team hit the ground running with additional programming that matches its core mission. MIH will strive to reduce unnecessary health-related expenditures, improve health outcomes, streamline sustainable access to care, transform the delivery of healthcare, and increase comprehensive resource sharing.
MIH utilizes paramedics with knowledge and experience working in the field to deliver a consistent medical product to those with whom we interact. Our MIH paramedics have all required PA state licenses necessary for unrestricted medical command, as well as additional specialized training in mental health first aid and community paramedicine.
