Virginia Elite v3 Data Dictionary v3.4.0 (rev. 7/17/17)
Posted by Bryan Hodges, Last modified by Bryan Hodges on 15 August 2018 11:14 AM

OEMS has revised and is publishing an updated EMS Virginia Data Dictionary (version 3.4.0) along with a version change document.  The version change document attached to this article (Version changes from 3.3.0 to 3.4.0) documents the changes made from the previous data dictionary.  

The timeline for Data Dictionary changes to be implemented will be as follows:

  • Data Dictionary Release Date: 06-16-2017
  • Start Implementation on: 07-17-2017
  • Target date of completion: 07-21-2017

The 30 day window between release date and the start implementation date is to allow all vendors and agencies the opportunity to review this document and contact OEMS regarding any questions or perceived discrepancies/issues. 

During the 5 day window between the start of implementation and the completion of implementation, any updates that need to be made to the states system to align it with the new Data Dictionary will be made.  We do not anticipate that this will cause any issues with a providers’ ability to enter in records directly into the Virginia Elite system or impact 3rd party vendor imports.

As a note, Agencies may still submit above and beyond this minimum dataset if they desired to collect further information on an agency, locality, or regional level.  The Virginia Elite system will collect all standard NEMSIS v3 data elements.
