Education and Quality

Our roots are in experiential healthcare education. Like you, we know that there is a meaningful difference between passing a protocol exam and practicing medicine. For short-term staffing, it is particularly crucial that paramedics arrive at their assignments ready to provide care, not sit in a classroom. That's why we built the High Acuity Low Occurrence (HALO) certification.

To qualify as a travel paramedic with Best Practice Medicine candidates must complete the following process.

  1. Pass rigorous character interview and assessment
  2. Pass clinical board interview with senior BPM paramedic and physician staff
  3. Pass FBI background check, social media assessment, and credit check
  4. Submit up to date vaccination records
  5. Achieve initial High Acuity Low Occurence certification in the past 12 months
  6. Maintain HALO certification with 90% or higher in all disciplines (Hazards)

Key Words

  • Fully Burdened - this is the cost to your agency for full-time employees. The national average is between 25-35% of the hourly wage the employee earns. This accounts for taxes, insurance and benefits cost to the employer of this employee.
    • For example, 18/hour paramedic = 18 x 1.30 = $24.30/hour fully burdened hourly rate.
  • Bill Rate - this is the rate billed on an hourly basis for the travel paramedic. All expenses are included in this bill rate.
