[EMS Users] VPHIB Outage
Posted by Bryan Hodges on 08 January 2015 01:27 PM

The VPHIB system is experiencing server level technical difficulties and is currently unavailable.  The appropriate staff are working to resolve the problem.  For those that transfer EMS data from thrid party software vendors or your own State Bridge you may wish to hold of transmitting large files until this issue has been resolved.  Once we have received notice that the problem has been corrected and the system is once again available, we will send out another notice.

Thanks for you patience as we work to resolve this issue.

VAv3 Forum Today at 3:00 pm. Limiting Service Defined Questions
Posted by VPHIB Admin on 10 December 2014 08:53 AM

Reminder VPHIB Version 3 Open Forum Meeting Today @ 3:00 EST.

Just a reminder, that the monthly VAv3 Open Forum is this afternoon at 3:00 p.m.  This month we will look at “Limiting the use of Service Defined Questions/Custom Elements”.

Working on the move of VPHIB to the new version 3 (VAv3) format; VPHIB program staffs are hosting a monthly webinar meeting, on the second Wednesday of each month at 3:00 PM, to provide education, information, dispel myths, answer questions, and allow EMS agencies in attendance to communicate with each other to as a source of peer support.

For our December meeting we will provide updates on:

Agenda – December 2014 Meeting

  • Purpose of the VAv3 forum.
  • Service Defined Questions
  • Eliminating/Decreasing the creation of non-NEMSIS elements by:
  • Using existing national elements;
  • Using validation rules to avoid custom elements;
  • Using reporting tools to find specific items.
  • Question and answer period to ask OEMS VAv3 questions.
  • Agency to agency questions (may not be needed this month)
  • How to find VAv3 resource information and stay informed.

To JOIN the meeting and be automatically dialed in:  To access the presentation go towww.intercall.com/genesys/go  AND call toll free 1-866-233-9464.  The meeting/room number is *6663691* and you will be asked for this when signing in on both the phone and on-line portions of the webinar.

Who – the target audience will be:

  • VPHIB agency administrators/Agency staff responsible for setting up EMS your agency’s data collection and submission system.
  • EMS software vendors.
  • EMS agency IT staff (if applicable).
  • Agency leadership if desired.
  • VPHIB Program staff will host.
  • We do not recommend this meeting to field EMS providers or hospitals, but ANYONE is welcome to attend and monitor.
  • Anyone is welcome to attend and monitor the call.  

What - will be the agenda?  Each month we will use the same agenda:

  • Education / Information / Dispel Myths about VAv3 by OEMS (15 – 20 minutes)
  • Questions from agencies and vendors for OEMS (15-20 minutes)
  • Agency to agency discussion (15 to 20 minutes)

Why - VPHIB staff anticipate v3 EMS software products to start becoming available to agencies in the fall of 2013 through spring 2014.  We hope by having a monthly open forum that we can establish open communication that provides education, information, and dispel myths about VAv3 between OEMS and EMS agencies, EMS software vendors, and other key groups while they are setting up and implementing their new version 3 products.

Where - the meetings will be held by “webinar.”  A webinar is a combination of seeing an on-line presentation on your computer, while being on a telephone conference.  A reminder will be sent out prior to each meeting with a link to the meeting “To JOIN the meeting and be automatically dialed in, to access the presentation go towww.intercall.com/genesys/go  AND call toll free 1-866-233-9464.  The meeting/room number is *6663691* and you will be asked for this when signing in on both the phone and on-line portions of the webinar.

When – The second Wednesday of every month at 3:00 p.m. through v3 implementation (now July 1, 2014).  We will plan on one hour, but this can be extended if desired by those attending.  Beginning on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 3:00 p.m.
