Alliance Membership Meeting: April 2019

2019 is becoming quite the year for the Louisiana Ambulance Alliance (LAA), as the organization, comprised of over 60 EMS providers throughout the state of Louisiana, gathered for its second Alliance Membership Meeting of the year. The meeting, which was held at East Baton Rouge Parish EMS in Baton Rouge, LA, covered a wide variety of topics such as operations, supplemental payments, the 2019 legislative slate and more.  

Stryker representatives offered a wealth of information about the company’s products and services.

“The purpose of the meeting was to cover upcoming legislation as well as update providers about grants and contracts,” said Daniel Landry, End the Epidemic Louisiana - Consortium Director. Alliance providers thoroughly discussed a variety of bills and voiced their opinions concerning each to best benefit the Alliance as a whole. 

 

“I always takeaway important information that I need to know, but can’t always keep up with,” added Tracy Wold, Alliance Treasurer of the Board. “I, like other providers, need and benefit from the expertise of the Alliance leadership.” The Alliance leadership and the insight of Louisiana EMS providers alike are what keep the organization moving in a direction of progress and peak performance.  

LAA/LRAA staff Daniel, Verinique and Seth each offered updates to our providers about End the Epidemic Louisiana, LAA/LRAA communications and marketing and LRAA’s assets.
