Iowa Upgrades to Integrated EMS, Trauma Data System

LAKEVILLE, MINN. [October 6, 2014] –ImageTrend, Inc. is proud to announce the Iowa Department of Public Health selected the company’s cloud-based software for statewide EMS and Trauma records. The digital records will provide statewide data analysis and reporting, shown to lead to better treatments and patient outcomes. Once implemented, a patient’s record can be connected from ambulance to hospital emergency room and post-discharge care.

“We are very pleased to partner with our neighboring state of Iowa and their Department of Public Health in providing a centralized EMS and trauma care information system,” remarked ImageTrend President Mike McBrady. “The aggregate data allows a better understanding of patient care and outcomes on a statewide basis, and that understanding can be used for system-wide improvements.”

The solution is comprised of several of ImageTrend’s products that connect seamlessly. State Bridge™ will handle the EMS data aggregation using National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) requirements. ImageTrend Patient Registry will process trauma records from facilities using the Iowa Trauma Patient Data Dictionary, which includes the National Trauma Data Base (NTDB) standards. Combined, the solution will be more than capable of accepting and processing data from the state’s 118 trauma care facilities and approximately 440 EMS transport services.

Iowa joins more than 30 other states that also chose ImageTrend for EMS data aggregation. ImageTrend’s solutions already process the majority of all EMS incidents nationwide, in excess of 90 million records, using the company’s secure cloud environment. ImageTrend is also a major provider of trauma data software for states and hospitals that have obtained the highest level of certification (Level I).
