About the OR-EMSIS
OR-EMSIS is Oregon's prehospital emergency medical services data system. All licensed transporting EMS agencies submit patient care reports electronically to this central repository. If you have questions regarding required reporting please refer to our FAQ.
The objectives of the OR-EMSIS are to:
Provide a low barrier solution for agencies in Oregon for electronic documentation of EMS patient encounters
Serve as a Repository for data about EMS transports in Oregon
Provide patient care data to the National EMS Information System (NEMSIS)
Support agency clinical performance and quality improvement initiatives
Provide data for development and tracking of state and regional EMS performance
Provide data to support public health practice, research and education
Produce annual statistical reports
Transition to NEMSIS 3.5
NEMSIS 3.5 is an update to the national data standard for EMS patient care reports (ePCRs). This transition will require coordinated effort between the Oregon EMS & Trauma Systems program, EMS agencies, and ePCR vendors. Most of the major ePCR vendors in Oregon have secured NEMSIS compliance certification for their ePCR products. Watch for updates, training materials, and resources from the Oregon EMS & Trauma Systems program including emails, webinars, and videos.

If your agency is not yet live with the new data standard, we are here to help you. Here’s an overview of how to ensure you meet this deadline:
Select your vendor
The State of Oregon provides use of ImageTrend Elite at no cost for all EMS agencies in the state, or you may opt for another vendor. See above for a list of vendors with successful transition projects in the state.
Make a transition plan
Please ask the person at your agency responsible for EMS reporting to Oregon to respond to the
NEMSIS 3.5 transition plan poll. It should only take a couple of minutes. Please respond even if you don’t know your plans yet.
Review the appropriate transition checklist
