(Falls Church, Va.) – The California Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) went live in the fall of 2019 as the 21st state to use the Biospatial platform. EMSA now will be able to use existing EMS data to deliver more timely actionable information analyses, at no cost to the state.
Biospatial uses emergency medical services and health-related data sources to provide timely, national-scale syndromic detection, monitor real-time trends, and alert to syndromic anomalies critical to the nation’s health and safety. EMSA will submit National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) data elements to the Biospatial platform to assist in national preparedness and enhance California’s ability to visualize their data with other data layers of relevance.
