Step 4 of the South Carolina EMS Software Testing Requirements: http://www.emspic.org/?q=node/149.
FIREHOUSE Software has been tested and approved for use in South Carolina. Each EMS Agency using the software must submit a small number of sample records to the EMSPIC for review. This review will confirm that the EMS software is properly installed and the EMS Agency is correctly configured for live data submission. Sample records must be submitted through a secure FTP test user account provided by the EMSPIC at 919-843-0201. The sample incident data can be generated in three possible ways:
- Re-entering previous EMS incident records but using the new NEMSIS code set.
- Creating fictitious sample records which should be deleted after the state has approved the department for live data submission.
- Entering in new EMS Incident records.
The sample export should include a minimum of 3 patient reports. We recommend the patient reports come from a variety of incident response (IE: Motor Vehicle Accident, Cardiac Arrest, Personal Injury). The variety should attempt to include the fields collected by South Carolina EMS.
