The Data Managers Council formulates recommendations on policies and positions specific to EMS data systems. The Data Managers Council is committed to assure that EMS leadership has a “seat at the table” in data initiatives, as well as reviews and provides input into national plans and documents.
The vision of the Data Managers Council is to be a national leader in developing and maintaining a fully-integrated and functioning National EMS Information System in all states and territories.
The mission of the Data Managers Council is to promote the development, standardization, and improvement of state and national EMS data systems.
The Data Managers Council provides a forum for communication, interaction and networking between peers, other national organizations and federal agencies with similar missions. This forum allows for the sharing of best practices; developing and encouraging mentoring programs; the joint resolution of obstacles and challenges; and the nationwide promotion of evidence-based decision making.
The Data Managers Council meets by teleconference on the third Tuesday of the month at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time; generally for two hours. The Council also meets at both the NASEMSO Mid-Year (March) and Annual (last September or early October) Meetings.
