Most Louisiana EMS providers participate in the LERN provider network – utilizing LERN’s pre-hospital protocols and collaborating with LERN’s Communications Centers to efficiently deliver trauma patients to the hospital-based resources that can best address their specific injuries.

EMS participation in LERN is voluntary – the terms of EMS participation are captured in a written agreement. Through the participation agreement, EMS providers agree to utilize LERN entry criteria and destination protocols, coordinate with the LERN Communications Center, provide relevant data, and participate in LERN’s efforts to manage and improve the quality of the trauma system.
