What is NEMSIS?

Many statewide EMS data systems have been created. However, these EMS systems vary in their ability to collect patient and systems data and allow analysis across local, state, and national levels. The NEMSIS project was developed to help states collect more standardized elements and eventually submit the data to a national EMS database.  NEMESIS is yet another emerging government standard with which Disaster Management Solutions complies.

According to NEMESIS.org, a National EMS Database Will Be Useful In:
• Developing Nationwide EMS Training Curricula
• Evaluating Patient and EMS System Outcomes
• Facilitating Research Efforts
• Determining National Fee Schedules and Reimbursement Rates
• Addressing Resources for Disaster and Domestic Preparedness
• Providing Valuable Information on Other Issues or Areas of Need Related to EMS Care
NEMESIS is an acronym for National Emergency Medical Services Information System
