The Prehospital Medical Information System (PreMIS) is a state mandated internet based EMS information system which collects data on each EMS call report made within the state. Data is submitted daily to the EMSPIC in one of two ways. The first is through a web based data entry tool. The second method is through an XML import process. The PreMIS system provides a capability for the evaluation of EMS patient care and system performance. PreMIS functions beyond a medical record and quality management tool, in that hospital outcome data, billing data, and linkages to multiple databases outside EMS are maintained.
The PreMIS System also has a dynamic reporting capability which is available to EMS Administrators. It is through these reports that Administrators can assess trends within their agency and evaluate the performance of their personnel. The EMSPIC develops new reports regularly as requested by the EMS Administrators and funding agencies.
