Comments Sought on NEMSIS Version 3

Feb 24, 2010

The NEMSIS Version 3 Final Draft is now available for download and review.
The NEMSIS Version 3 Final Draft is now available for download and review. This is the second of 3 draft documents leading to a final Version 3 dataset in May of 2010. During this same time period the NEMSIS dataset is migrating into the HL7 based standards with a goal of formal HL7 balloting and approval ending in 2012. The goal of this draft release is to allow all NEMSIS users, EMS experts, and interested parties to review the dataset and provide comments and/or suggestions through the NEMSIS website at
www.NEMSIS.org.

To focus this review, the draft 2 document has been consolidated to provide only the key information relative to data collect data collection and application. Software related business logic/rules, XML structure, data element value codes, and Version 2 to 3 translational mapping is not included in this public comment. A separate public comment period will be provided for the business logic and XML structure components of NEMSIS Version 3 in the 2nd quarter of 2010. The first few pages of the NEMSIS Version 3 Draft provide an overview and summary of the document. Additional content will be provided over the next week to better describe the changes between Version 2 and Version 3.
