We've updated the WV Electronic Patient Care Record Data Dictionary with some changes:

Version 1.21 changes

  • Change formatting, spelling and table of contents issues.
  • Documented the already established use of field E02_12 to record the West Virginia assigned vehicle sticker number in place of the Radio Call Sign.
  • Corrected the naming of the Field E23_11 in the list comparing the NEMSIS Gold, the WV required elements and the National (NEMSIS Silver) data elements.

Version 1.2 changes

  • Version 1.2 has added the requirement for the reporting of Field E13_01 and E23_11.
  • Field E23_11 has been added because; by NEMSIS definition, field E23_11 identifies the content of NEMSIS field E23_09 and E23_09 cannot exist without E23_11. As E23_09 will only and always contains the "Medical Command Run Identification Number" when available, field E23_11 should contain the text "Medical Command Run Identification Number" to identify the contents of E23_09.
  • Field E13_01 has been added because; WVOEMS has determined that it is impossible to appropriately evaluate the appropriate delivery of EMS Services without inclusion of the free formed narrative.
