Know Your NEMSIS Webinars Available for Online Viewing

Oct 05, 2012

Know Your NEMSIS I & II Webinars are now available for online viewing. These trainings were a collaboration of the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and the Utah Department of Health, Bureaus of EMS and Health Promotion, made possible by the Epidemiology and Evaluation Committee (ECC) of the Cardiovascular Health Council, National Association of Chronic Disease Directors.

The presentations demonstrate how to use EMS data in public health surveillance, and show how to access the NEMSIS Analytical Cube and use criteria to identify a chronic disease. The NEMSIS TAC used “diabetic/hypoglycemia” as the Provider’s Primary Impression for the demonstration. The goals of the two presentations are to encourage data linkage and collaboration between health care agencies. Click here for the March 22nd Know Your NEMSIS I presentation.
