EMS and Healthcare Data Integration

EMS & Data Integration The vision set forth in EMS Agenda 2050 calls for a people-centered approach to EMS that includes a more seamless, less siloed system. A key piece of that effort will be better integration of pre-hospital, hospital and other healthcare data. Integrating data systems and allowing more access to critical information can help pre-hospital, hospital and other clinicians provide safer, more effective and more efficient patient care.
