As pre-hospital care administrators struggle with the demands of patient care, staff wellbeing and financial stability, many turn to Washko & Associates for a better solution with a care-focused approach that saves time, saves money and, ultimately, saves lives.
“We’re on the cutting edge of healthcare reform,” says EMS systems consultant Jonathan Washko. “How do you transform the way you look at your pre-hospital care business in these times, into something that hasn’t really been developed yet?”
Jonathan has spent most of his 26-year career answering that question for many EMS organizations, including The Republic of Georgia’s developing health care system.
Washko & Associates is an EMS systems consulting firm that launched in 2000 to serve the diverse needs of pre-hospital care providers. Jonathan, former Stout Solutions partner, Debbie Washko, Jonathan’s wife and a former ER nurse, and a team of industry-leading pre-hospital care experts, provide High-performance EMS insight.
For more than 26 years, Jonathan Washko has developed unique talents and expertise in systems and process improvement engineering to spearhead reform of many EMS systems. As a long-time partner of Stout Solutions, Jonathan joined forces with Todd Stout to help improve EMS organizations around the world. He was a key partner in the development and commercialization of FirstWatch real-time early warning system.
After significant success of FirstWatch, Jonathan bought the consulting arm of Stout Solutions to continue his work as a highly sought after EMS systems consultant. Together with his wife, Jonathan continues to consult, write and speak about the importance of EMS organization improvements that better serve its community.
Today, Washko & Associates is an industry leader on EMS system design, System Status Management and High-performance EMS concepts. The company is focused on the future, providing expert solutions for community-based paramedical care, broad-scope paramedics and extending the primary care network.
