Posted by VPHIB Admin on 02 March 2015 10:01 AM

OEMS is developing the March Data Quality Dashboard report, March Compliance Report, and NEMSIS submission.  All EMS responses up to and including January 31, 2015 should be submitted by today.  

Below is a general description of the roll out groupings and revised mandatory deadlines to move to version 3.  Click on this link or go to VPHIB’s Support Suite’s “Timeline for v2 to v3 migration” section to look-up your agency’s deadline.  Contact VPHIB support with any questions, concerns, or request to change your agency’s projected date.

Group 1 – Begin implementation 7/1/15 with last day to collect v2 on 8/31/2015.  Agencies that use the OEMS provided ImageTrend Field Bridge and do not bill for service and Agencies that manually enter EMS data directly into the VPHIB website.

Group 2 – Begin implementation 9/1/15 with last day to collect v2 on 10/31/2015.  Agencies that use the OEMS provided ImageTrend Field Bridge and bill for service.

Group 3 – Last day to collect v2 data will be on 12/31/2015.  Agencies that only provide EMS service and EMS/Fire agencies that utilize EMS software that only collects EMS data (fire data collected separately). For example: EMS Consultants, emsCharts, ESO Solutions, Forte Holdings, Golden Hour, Zoll, etc. users.

Group 4 - Last day to collect v2 data will be on 6/30/2016.  EMS/Fire agencies that use a single software program to collect EMS and fire data.  Also, EMS agencies that submit through their County/City fire service that uses a single software program to collect data (i.e. volunteer rescue squad that submits through its county fire service.)  For example: FDM, Firehouse, High Plains, ImageTrend (Rescue Bridge only), Open Inc. etc.

Revised and Final Version 3 Migration Timeline
Posted by VPHIB Admin on 05 February 2015 04:41 PM

Virginia Licensed EMS Agencies:

The OEMS has determined that it is in the EMS system’s best interest to widen the version 3 EMS dataset roll out schedule. Widening the window will allow agencies with more flexibility to plan, perform training, and implement v3 prior to the state deadline. The expanded timeline was most needed to allow software vendors that provide a single product to collect EMS and fire data (NFIRS) with more time to further develop the fire part of their products. The additional time will also benefit EMS software vendors that are currently deploying their new version 3 products.

OEMS will begin the Virginia move to VAv3 by first implementing those agencies that utilize the OEMS provided Field Bridge (State ePCR). This will be followed by agencies that only provide EMS service and some that provide EMS and fire service. The last group will be those that use a single product to collect and report both EMS and NFIRS data.

For any agency that prefers to move their agency to VAv3 prior to the window provided by OEMS are encouraged to do so. OEMS has its version 3 system up and running. It is not OEMS’ intention to delay any agency from implementing version 3 now, if the agency wishes to implement sooner.

Below is a general description of the roll out groupings and revised mandatory deadlines to move to version 3.
