OC-MEDS Bi-Directional Data Exchange Project



Orange County Emergency Medical Services (OCEMS) is actively working on a project to strengthen and enhance the existing EMS data system (known as the Orange County Medical Emergency Data System, or OC-MEDS) by enabling bi-directional health care data exchange between 9-1-1 EMS provider agencies and OCEMS designated emergency receiving centers (ERC) throughout the County.

This project will establish secure connections between OC-MEDS and each respective ERC’s Electronic Health Records (EHR) system(s) to ensure real time availability of EMS records for clinical use and ensure return of patient outcome data to EMS providers and OCEMS to improve patient care and countywide medical/health situational awareness.

Project Timeline: Jan. 2022 through Jul. 2023
