Orange County Medical Emergency Data System

ocmedslogo Since 2006, Orange County Emergency Medical Services (OCEMS), in concert with EMS system stakeholders and participants, has been actively working to develop an interoperable electronic data management solution that will track prehospital patient care events from the moment that 9-1-1 is called through discharge from an emergency department. The new data management solution, called the Orange County Medical Emergency Data System (OC-MEDS), has been designed to be compliant with the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) and the California EMS Information System (CEMSIS). These new capabilities will significantly improve such things as quality assurance / quality improvement efforts, countywide syndromic surveillance, and real-time EMS event and patient tracking with user specific web-based reporting tools.
