The primary directive of the RESCUE (Recording of Emergency Services Calls and Urgent Care Environment) system is to improve the quality and timeliness of Electronic Patient Care Report (ePCR) data received by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Office of EMS. RESCUE is fully compliant with the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) standard 3.4.0 allowing nightly submissions to the NEMSIS repository. This presentation provides details of the four parts of the RESCUE system including central repository, NEMSIS compliance reporting, management dashboards, and client interfaces. The presentation will provide preliminary results in linkage of ePCRs to eCrash reports and discuss on-going work in linking to the Alabama Trauma Registry.
