9 EMCARE 9 INTEGRATED CLINICAL SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGIES EmCare recognized years ago the value of integrating clinical services as a means to create new efficiencies, reduce costs and improve relations between clinical departments leading to better outcomes, improved patient experiences and financial synergies that may reduce or eliminate subsidies. EMERGENCY MEDICINE + HOSPITAL MEDICINE When both emergency and hospital medicine physician practices are managed by EmCare, exceptional measures are put in place to promote collaboration, accountability and engagement between disciplines including shared processes, technologies, incentives and escalation paths. EmCare s Door-To-Discharge service model cultivates accountability between departments, improving service to the patient, reduces risk, decreases E.D. boarding and wait times and positively impacts both patient and hospital staff satisfaction.
10 EMCARE INTEGRATED CLINICAL TECHNOLOGY BETTER TOGETHER EmCare utilizes a variety of software platforms and infrastructure solutions uniquely design to suport our integrated service models and focused on improving clinical quality outcomes, metrics and patient satisfaction, enabling significant financial impact. This suite of solutions includes: RAPID ADMISSION PROCESS AND GAP ORDERS (RAP&GO ) Proprietary evidencebased software with predefined protocols facilitates improved hand-offs between emergency and hospital medicine physicians for those patients admitted from the E.D. The RAP&GO software and integration process significantly decreases boarding time for patients awaiting disposition in the E.D., opening up significant opportunity for new E.D. volume and driving metric improvement. DIRECT ADMIT SYSTEM FOR HOSPITALS (DASH) DASH allows community-based primary care physicians, free-standing E.D.s, urgent care centers and outlying hospitals to direct admit patients to EmCare client hospitals and allows those referral sources to track their patients and coordinate care. EMCARE S CHARGE CAPTURE SOFTWARE EmCare s proprietary charge capture is an Internet-based software solution that helps prevent lost revenue by automating the rounding, sign-off and physician coding process for hospitalist billing. The shared data collected and managed by the system facilitates better handoffs and improved physician communication. QUALITICK Qualitick is a touchscreen patient survey tool that uses portable tablets to facilitate immediate and actionable patient feedback to the hospital service departments and leadership. The real-time feedback provided helps improve overall patient satisfaction through timely and proactive response and enables process improvements which may improve HCAHPS performance and reimbursements. VIDRAY VidRay provides brief video clips of radiologists interpretations which are used to conveniently communicate key information and training to other physicians and patients. VidRays can help achieve improved diagnostic accuracy as well as both physician and patient satisfaction. RAYSTRACKER RaysTracker is a state-ofthe-art Radiology Information System (RIS) and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) that provides real-time access to patient images and reports, and links disparate systems into a unified work list. The system increases productivity, reduces errors and turnaround times, and improves service levels. EMCARE IS A TRUSTED, DEPENDABLE PARTNER OFFERING AN UNMATCHED ARRAY OF SERVICES.

14 EMCARE HOSPITAL MEDICINE Decreased lengths of stay IMPROVED CARE. IMPROVED METRICS. MEDICAL STAFF AND PATIENT SATISFACTION. EmCare Hospital Medicine helps hospitals increase medical staff satisfaction, reduce inpatient lengths of stay, enhance resource utilization, shorten E.D. turnaround time and provide continuity of care for patients. Since 1993, EmCare Hospital Medicine has provided hospital medicine staffing and management services designed to improve customer service to patients and medical staff, decrease inpatient and E.D. lengths of stay, improve efficiencies and achieve financial results. EmCare offers three service models: INNOVATING, DELIVERING SIGNIFICANT ROI We are proud to be introducing innovations that are achieving improvements in quality of care, efficiency and satisfaction, and which are able to deliver enhanced ROI. EmCare s three service models help to increase efficiencies and can decrease costs associated with preventable readmissions and related CMS-imposed financial penalties, and reduce or eliminate subsidiesk. FRANCISCO LOYA, MD Chief Executive Officer EmCare Hospital Medicine TRADITIONAL HOSPITAL MEDICINE MODEL Offers benefits of decreased lengths of stay and medical staff and patient satisfaction. EMCARE S DOOR-TO-DISCHARGE (D2D) INTEGRATED MODEL EmCare s Door-To- Discharge (D2D) service, when deployed in conjunction with EmCare s Rapid Admission Process and Gap Orders (RAP&GO) evidencebased software, can significantly decrease boarding time for patients awaiting disposition in the E.D. and can open up opportunity for new E.D. volume and metric improvement. The D2D model integrates management of both E.D. and the hospital medicine program. EMCARE S COMPLETECARE MODEL A cost-efficient option available to lower volume hospitals that benefit from the service of a single physician who coordinates patient care both in the E.D. and on inpatient floors. EMCARE ADDRESSES HCAHPS, CORE MEASURES AND VBP. WHY HOSPITALS PARTNER WITH EMCARE HOSPITAL MEDICINE Provides hospitalists, intensivists and OB laborists Pioneer in integrated clinical services and technologies including EmCare s Door-To- Discharge service with RAP&GO, DASH and EmCare s Charge Capture software platform Delivers programs to address Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Services (HCAHPS), industry reform, core measures and value-based purchasing Can reduce both E.D. and inpatient lengths of stay Improves both E.D and inpatient bed utilization Effectively manages cost per case Improves both referring physician and patient satisfaction Develops innovative approaches to diagnostics, treatment and patient care EmCare Hospital Medicine is changing the horizon of healthcare.
15 EMCARE 15 EXAMPLE: MULTIPLE HOSPITAL ROI WITH EMCARE S D2D* YEAR 1 = 3% HOSPITAL MEDICINE PROJECTED ACTUAL SUBSIDY TOTAL PROJECTED HOSPITAL E.D. VOL. GROWTH REDUCTION YEAR 1 IMPACT Hospital #1 $13,205,654 $1,909,000 $15,114,654 Hospital #2 $12,252,382 $2,376,000 $14,628,382 Hospital #3 $7,258,667 $2,093,000 $9,351,667 Hospital #4 $5,289,927 $1,050,000 $6,339,927 Hospital #5 $3,987,604 $930,000 $4,917,604 5-HOSPITAL TOTAL $41,994,234 $8,358,000 $50,352,234 * Potential new hospital revenue is representative of a decrease in LWOT/LPMSE rates and/or improved bed availability which in turn contributes to an increase in E.D. volume. An increase in E.D. volume may result in improved revenue for the hospital through charges for the additional patients in the E.D. Historical data suggests that admission rates under the D2D program remain essentially flat compared to the time period immediately prior to implementation of the D2D program. Thus, the additional E.D. volume would result in additional admissions and potential increased revenue for the hospital.
16 EMCARE SURGICAL SERVICES Call coverage solved. Satisfied medical staff surgeons. EmCare Surgical Services provides hospitals with hospital-based general surgeons who have expertise in acute care (emergency and trauma) surgery. An acute care surgery program can help to stabilize a hospital s medical staff, provide general surgery call coverage, solidify surgical services, strengthen the hospital s reputation within the community, enhance physician recruiting efforts and keep surgical cases from migrating away from the facility. EmCare s trauma surgery program includes all of the above benefits with the added value of a full trauma program, including experienced medical direction and highly qualified surgical personnel. EmCare s trauma program focuses on managing the full spectrum of patients, adding value and increasing market share through increased E.D. visits. By increasing trauma designation, our program works to change local EMS patterns, trafficking more patients to the hospital, allowing for more EMS visits, surgeries and referrals. With application and verification, a trauma program allows the facility to bill for trauma activations and participate in governmental funding programs that can represent a compelling ROI. The company also offers oversight for trauma program development including significant trauma management expertise and proprietary technology. We have demonstrated success in helping client hospitals gain American College of Surgeons (ACS) certification on the first attempt. Gaining trauma designation can unlock access to federal and state funding for hospitals that were ineligible to receive those funds prior to attaining a trauma designation. EmCare Surgical Services can also develop an elective surgical practice that supports the hospital s goals. We bring highly qualified surgeons to the community to provide surgical coverage in general, orthopedics, bariatrics, robotics or other specialties. Our surgeons do not compete with our hospital clients for patients. WHY HOSPITALS PARTNER WITH EMCARE SURGICAL SERVICES Provides surgeons dedicated to trauma, emergency and general surgery Provides surgery and trauma call coverage Can broaden hospital s revenue base Keeps surgical cases from migrating away from the facility Can change EMS patterns May increase primary care and other referrals Can help hospitals add desired non-trauma surgical cases including elective specialties May reduce lengths of stay Stabilizes hospital medical and surgical staff Helps hospitals secure and escalate trauma designations thereby gaining access to new state and federal funding Helps fill gaps when there are surgeon vacancies and periodic shortages Improves E.D. throughput and O.R. efficiency, which can improve the bottom line Can help make full-time surgeon opportunities at hospitals more attractive to candidates who are specialized or do not want to assume call obligations EMCARE IS PIONEERING NEW CONCEPTS IN EMERGENCY AND TRAUMA SURGERY. When administration needs to breathe new life into the hospital, developing an acute care surgery program or seeking trauma designation could be the answer. EmCare Surgical Services can help your hospital achieve that goal.
17 EMCARE 17 SURGICAL EXPERTS 24/7 We are committed to helping hospital administrators solve the issues they face in their commitment to provide dependable, in-hospital surgical services. Their goal is our promise: to deliver quality trauma and acute care surgery to their patients and local communities in an economically viable, efficient manner.

Our unique ability to coordinate care throughout the entire surgical experience makes us the leader in perioperative care. EmCare has pioneered the development of preoperative clinics that utilize multi-specialty expertise to improve the safety and efficiency of patient preparation, reduce case cancellation and delay rates, and improve satisfaction of both patients and surgeons. A BALANCED APPROACH TO OPTIMAL O.R. UTILIZATION Few hospitals have mastered the fine art and science of O.R. staffing and scheduling in ways that most effectively utilize available providers and operating rooms. EmCare evaluates each organization s goals, resources, number of locations and number of operating rooms to determine the most time-efficient and cost-effective formula for case volume, surgeon satisfaction and financial impact. The results can include more on-time starts, faster room turnover and increased case throughput, all of which can lead to decreased cost per case and improved utilization. WHY HOSPITALS PARTNER WITH EMCARE ANESTHESIA SERVICES Offers a full suite of anesthesia services: Perioperative approach Pre-anesthesia testing (PAT) clinics which can significantly reduce surgical case delays and cancellations Post-op care coordination management Pain clinics Provides leadership, management and O.R. process improvement programs Offers consultative services to provide outstanding and effective O.R. utilization management Flexible coverage models: All anesthesiologists Care team anesthesiologists supervising CRNAs All CRNAs Deploys cost-saving programs, often resulting in subsidy reduction or even subsidy elimination Delivers exceptional service resulting in improved surgeon, staff and patient satisfaction EmCare offers the complete anesthesia solution.

EmCare Radiology Services offers hospitals immediate, accessible, full-service consultations with highly-qualified on-site physicians. Organizations needing full or supplemental subspecialty radiology coverage can alternatively benefit from the convenience, quality and accuracy of teleradiology interpretations provided by EmCare s teleradiology partner Rays. EmCare and Rays can improve radiology quality, eliminate radiology study backlogs and significantly reduce wait times for patients and medical staff. EmCare offers a flexible, convenient and cost-effective practice model that includes: customized staffing, recruiting, leadership, quality assurance, metric improvement and fast turnaround times. A radiology practice that is integrated and aligned with other hospital departments can improve organizational efficiencies, optimize clinical care and enhance patient and physician satisfaction. COMPREHENSIVE RADIOLOGY DEPARTMENT STAFFING & MANAGEMENT. Hospital executives are familiar with the concept of outsourcing the staffing and management of emergency departments and hospitalist programs through EmCare. But now they are becoming familiar with a similar process through EmCare Radiology Services where qualified radiologists provide on-site coverage and supplemental teleradiology support. EmCare Radiology Services is a radiologist-led, national practice fostering high-quality, efficiency and satisfaction for its clients while supporting a positive atmosphere of camaraderie, learning, communication, cordiality and cooperation among its radiologists.
