Clinical Initiative Review Process & Committee
Clinical Initiative Review Committee
Our clinical guidelines are designed to guide the safe and effective delivery of clinical services in a manner that places the patient at the center, uses an evidence-based approach to defining care, minimizes the risk of harm to patients and providers, and seeks to provide a positive patient experience. In addition, the Clinical Initiative Review Committee is intended to proactively plan for the successful implementation of clinical initiatives (new or revised), identify potential challenges and unintended consequences, and evaluate the financial and operational impacts of the proposed clinical initiatives.
The process evaluates and prioritizes clinical initiatives while also serving as a project planning process for EMS System stakeholder agencies. The Clinical Initiative Review Committee (CIRC) comprises representatives from various stakeholder agencies and focuses on planning for clinical initiative implementation once clinical effectiveness and patient/provider safety priorities are established.
