Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
The State of Florida Department of Health (FDOH), Bureau of EMS announced the selection of Intermedix Corporation—a leading provider of technology-enabled solutions for America's health and safety net—as its new vendor for the state repository system that collects, analyzes, and reports patient care data submitted by licensed EMS agencies.
After a competitive solicitation in 2012, the Bureau of EMS chose to partner with Intermedix to customize its repository solution to serve as a component of the current State Pre-Hospital Data Collection Program. With this solution, agencies, regional EMS officials, and state administrators can view and create a variety of reports for analysis and automatically send data to third party systems.
This multi-year, multi-phase partnership begins with the immediate implementation of the Intermedix NEMSIS (National EMS Information System) 2.2.1 Gold-certified application that has over 12 years of use as a state and regional repository for EMS data. The next phase involves upgrading the solution to become NEMSIS 3 compliant before the end of this year. NEMSIS offers technical assistance and issues standards for the capture and tracking of National EMS Data. See http://www.nemsis.org for more information.
Intermedix is working with the Bureau of EMS to implement several custom features into the repository solution, which will increase functionality for current and future clients. With the Division of Emergency Medical Services already using four Intermedix systems—patient tracking and communications systems, EMTrack and EMResource, and volunteer management and notification systems, FDENS and SERV-FL—implementing the NEMSIS repository will enhance integration between division technology solutions.
Intermedix is no stranger to Florida’s EMS sector, as multiple agencies throughout the state currently use its ePCR solution, TripTix. TripTix is a NEMSIS-Gold certified data collection tool for individual EMS, fire, and first responder agencies, supporting approximately 230,000 transport runs in Florida annually and comprising 20% of the reports submitted to the existing EMSTARS (Emergency Medical Services Tracking and Reporting) platform. The application contains features such as CAD integration, SSN and Driver License look-up, and seamless real-time data submission from individual providers to the state NEMSIS repository.
Intermedix also provides revenue cycle management services to a large portion of the state, processing over 850,000 annual EMS billing transactions. In addition, more than 400 ambulances and other emergency response vehicles throughout the state use Intermedix Fleeteyes to support GPS tracking and automated vehicle location.
Intermedix focuses on the highly fragmented US healthcare and emergency response industries by delivering information technology and business services to manage the revenue cycle, promote preparedness and interoperability, and support incident response management, documentation, and reporting. Intermedix provides practice management and revenue cycle management services for emergency physicians and hospital emergency departments, emergency medical services (ambulance) agencies, anesthesiologists, primary care physicians, urgent care centers, and fire departments throughout the US. The company also provides technology solutions for federal, state and local government agencies, healthcare providers, and corporations using the brand names WebEOC®, EMResource™, EMTrack™, CORES, TripTix®, and Fleeteyes™.
