Research Committee Webinar: Understanding the Spectrum of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Data Sources and Their Variation By Community

The ISDS Research Committee is hosting a webinar on Thursday, May 27th, from 12:00-1:30 pm EST on EMS data sources.

There is a saying in EMS that if you've "seen one EMS system, then you've seen one EMS system". Many EMS systems have good or even great data for surveillance and research, but while there are some standards developing for EMS data formats and sharing, very few systems have the capability to share data using them.

Presenters will discuss the current state of 9-1-1/EMS dispatch and field electronic medical records systems, and the changing impact of the official and informal standards and variations of data seen in different communities. In addition, research using EMS data to predict hospital ED overload, and EMS correlation with ILI will also be addressed.
