About Us




We are Human to Human Company

We provide three people centric service lines

Travel Paramedics

EMS Services

Education

Best Practice Medicine (BPM) is a clinician-owned and founded small business started by three guys and a dog in 2015. We quit our clinical jobs and set off to build Best Practice Medicine because we saw good clinicians make bad decisions that hurt people, not because they wanted to, but because they lacked access to meaningful clinical education.

As our practice steadily grew the reality of how few dollars are assigned to healthcare education became a very real issue. To supplement this and recruit and support more full-time staff we established our EMS services team, providing paramedic teams and ambulance services in support of wildfires and other disasters in the West.

Responding to the needs of healthcare systems and industry as a result of the pandemic saw our roster swell to more than a thousand employees supporting a variety of operations coast-to-coast. As a result, BPM built our national reputation as an employer of high-quality paramedics and a trusted healthcare-oriented problem solver in multiple industries.

Education, EMS Services, and COVID response created the right environment and experience on our team to create and deliver the nation's first dedicated travel paramedic program. Where we are placing paramedics in EMS service, hospitals, and other healthcare settings in the same way healthcare has used travel staff for decades.

Today BPM is field teams of paramedics coast-to-coast, responds with our EMS services resources to local and national disasters, and sets the benchmark in meaningful education for high consequence teams.

We are working to,

Guarantee the health and safety of clinical teams and patients in time-sensitive decisions.


We know who we are

At Best Practice Medicine we live by a simple set of core values. Everything we do is informed by these values. When we win, it's because of them, when we lose, it's because was temporarily lost sight of them. Every member of our team knows that we hire, fire, promote, discipline celebrate, and reward around these core values of Best Practice Medicine.

Optimism

The science of positivity is irrefutable. We cultivate and are responsible for positive energy and attitudes with fun, never take ourselves too seriously, and we notice the good, especially when it’s scarce.

Learner and Learning First

We are relentless in putting the act of learning first, for ourselves, our team and our clients and their learners.

Can-Do Fighting Spirit

We specialize in the challenging, the difficult and the impossible. We are by our nature problem solvers, trailblazers, inventors, innovators, and envelope pushers. Our constant curiosity pushes us to ask questions and keep going until the job is done.

Radical Support

We believe the purest form of compassion and kindness is support. We are more than helpful, we are radically supportive. When we recognize a member of our team, our learners and clients need help, we rush to their sides and do not leave until the work is done. We sacrifice for others.

Fanatical Attention to Detail

We make the complex simple by focusing on thoroughness, consistency, and the little things.

I have to tell you what happened approximately two weeks after our simulation training. A local resident was flying his power parachute when he ran into the main power lines. He released himself (frame was hanging from the line) but when he walked around the parachute he touched the frame of his craft and was electrocuted. He came in with severe burns (40%). Myself and the provider had just done t...

Our Story

By Ben King, CEO

We, the founders, (Joe, Loren, and I) were practicing air medical critical providers and clinical educators with a problem. In the decades of experience in our diverse disciplines and models of response and healthcare, none of us had found a solution to our collective challenge.

So we built one.

In doing so, we were overwhelmed with the need for an independent team like Best Practice Medicine to support our incredible colleagues' healthcare. Today, we are humbled to lead a team of over forty change makers, driven to improve provider confidence and competence which we believe is necessary to decrease medical error and increase survivability through better performance and decision making in those, the most essential moments between life and death...
