North Dakota selects ESO to create statewide data repository for EMS agencies

System enables collaborative data input and sharing to drive performance improvement, injury prevention and better outcomes for North Dakota communities

AUSTIN — ESO, the leading data and software company serving emergency medical services (EMS), fire departments and hospitals, today announced it is partnering with North Dakota to create a data repository to collect and analyze EMS patient care reports from the more than 120 EMS agencies across the state. The collection and analysis of data will help with injury prevention, performance improvement and better patient outcomes. The project is an initiative of the Division of Emergency Medical Systems of the North Dakota Department of Health.

"We're proud to partner with the state of North Dakota and be a part of this journey to help improve the health and safety of their communities and protect the health and safety of their providers," said Allen Johnson, Vice President of ESO Healthcare. "Smart data and insightful analytics can be a real game changer for organizations across the healthcare spectrum when it comes to patient transport and treatment."

North Dakota will begin immediate implementation of ESO's web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) software platform to capture and analyze data from state agencies, as well as report that data to the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS). ESO EHR is NEMSIS 3.4.0 compliant and will maintain all future NEMSIS compliance requirements. The system will be live and fully functional for all state agencies by July 1, 2018.

Benefits for North Dakota and state agencies include:

  • State of the art, web-based electronic patient care reporting (ePCR) system for easy access to quickly input data
  • Detailed analytics to provide insights around injuries, performance and patient outcomes to drive improvement
  • Full compliance and integration with NEMSIS 3 for easy and automatic reporting of data
  • Integration with third-party ePCR systems to ensure continuity of data collection and reporting
