Virginia Elite Validation Rule updates (Activation Date: 07/17/17)
Posted by Bryan Hodges, Last modified by Bryan Hodges on 15 August 2018 11:18 AM

Attached to this article is the list of new validation rules and validation rule updates that will be implemented on July, 17th.  The PDF document is a visual representation of how the new rules and updated rules appear in the Virginia Elite system.  Please note that the PDF is just over 4MB due to the number of screenshots included.  It is hoped this additional document will answer any questions and help users prepare for the upcoming changes.

A new Schematron file will be created and made available for 3rd party vendors as soon as possible.  As other documentation regarding validation rules is ready, those items will be added to this article and additional notices sent out.

As OEMS now switches focus from the NEMSIS 3 implementation to Data Quality, validation rule updates/changes are going to be implemented more frequently through the end of 2018.  Agencies and vendors can expect OEMS to publish updates to these about every 90 days if needed.  This will allow OEMS to address any quality deficiencies as they are discovered.  We will still give agencies and vendors a minimum of 30 days’ notice before activating any new or updated validation rules.
