A Commitment to Emergency Care in West Virginia
West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources
State Trauma and Emergency Care System
We've partnered with the EMS
Performance Improvement Center at the University of North
Carolina to utilize the entire EMS data system currently being
used on a state-wide basis in North Carolina for almost two
This system includes the Prehospital Medical Information System
(PreMIS) record collection and storage system as well as the
Credentialing Information System (CIS) which provides collection
and tracking of EMS personnel and agencies.
WVPreMIS will become the benchmark EPCR for West Virginia,
ensuring strong compliance with the NEMSIS federal information system.
More importantly, this new adherence to NEMSIS standards will allow for
detailed EMS run data analysis and quality improvement programs.
Coupled with a new Credentialing Information System (CIS) that will
provide the underpinnings of a solid and complete EMS data system,
WVPreMIS will pave the road towards true quality analysis of West
Virginia run data.
Read the EPCR Memorandum from the former State
EMS Medical Director, Dr. William Ramsey.
Agencies that wish to use their own EPCR instead of WVPreMIS for
data collection and submission must pass a West Virginia
certification program (read West Virginia EPCR Vendor
Requirements) to ensure compatibility with both the federal
information standard (NEMSIS)
and West Virginia's specific requirements.
There's no catch. On the contrary, our goal is to
provide the direct benefit of this to you: the EMS agency.
Your data will become available to you in the form of customized
run data analysis reports, called Toolkits, designed to focus
on EMS performance metrics. View some samples of
EMS Toolkit reports that EMSPIC has developed for their in-state
