In 2013, the Indiana State Department of Health implemented the Indiana State EMS Bridge (https://indianaems.isdh.in.gov/). This program is a web-based, statewide data system designed to give Indiana's EMS providers the flexibility to collect their own data and report them to the Indiana State Department of Health. In return, this free, user-friendly system features a report writing function that allows agencies to use their data to define and create their own reports and publish them to several different formats. The program is both National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) compliant.
Several Indiana EMS providers already actively submit data to the state EMS registry.
The software vendor chosen for the registry is ImageTrend from Minneapolis, MN. ImageTrend has also been selected to provide a repository for trauma data. This combination of EMS and trauma data allows Indiana to develop a more robust data system with which we can create a better statewide patient care system.
