The goal of this project is to establish an interoperable, secure, information sharing solution that connects the healthcare system both horizontally and vertically to the established Tiered Emergency Response System and covers at least 90% of the state's population.
General Project Information
Through a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) the Florida Department of Health's Bureau of Preparedness and Response implemented the Communications and Patient Tracking Solution Project. On April 1, 2009, Intermedix Corporation was awarded a three year contract to implement their EMResource and EMTrack web-based applications throughout the state. This contract was renewed for an additional three years in 2012. Attached is the Communications and Patient Tracking (CPTS) Work Plan.
EMResourceTM and EMTrackTM will facilitate the exchange of information between emergency medical service providers, hospitals, health care entities, 911 dispatch centers and emergency operations centers. By sharing information, Intermedix will help facilities efficiently manage patients and resources and allow for pre disaster planning.
EMResource tracks key hospital and health care system resources and information on a daily basis in a real time environment. EMTrack tracks the location of patients and their condition as well as other important information. Together these tools will increase Florida's preparedness and response to public health emergencies and support the day-to-day information sharing needs of emergency medical services, hospitals, and health care providers.
