EMS Council Requesting Information on Your Runsheet Methods

Just a reminder:  we're trying to get information from every EMS agency that's a member of Council.  If you haven't already done so (and thank you to the SIXTY agencies who have!), please reply by Friday!  The survey takes only two minutes.

Greater Miami Valley EMS Council (GMVEMSC) and Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association (GDAHA) have a committee working on integrating electronic patient care reports (ePCR) with hospital electronic healthcare reports (EHR).  Personnel  from both hospital networks are represented on the committee, along with EMS providers and GDAHA/GDAHIN. 

Our intent is to be able to connect EMS providers with the EHR in every hospital in the region.  We are trying to select a vendor who can work with EMS agencies regardless of what brand of ePCR you use.  Goals for this project include:Reduce need for printing reports
Import EMS reports directly into EHRs, with the EMS reports immediately available to ED staffProvide improved statistical reporting for both hospitals and EMS, and dramatically improve QI data for EMS
Improve billing data accuracy for all providers (hospital and EMS)

To help us with this project, we're asking that every EMS agency in Greater Miami Valley EMS Council complete the following very short survey about your agency, how your personnel document EMS runs, and your interest in this project.  Please complete this survey by June 10, 2016 so that we can keep this project moving forward.  To complete the survey, simply click here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PYKHKRF

Thank you for your help.
