The Oregon Health Authority has permanently amended Oregon Administrative Rules in chapter 333, divisions 250, 255 and 265 relating to compliance with Governor's executive orders, ambulance construction criteria, and requirements for ambulance vehicles on reserve or loan. A fact sheet along with the final changes are available below:
The Oregon Health Authority (Authority) has made permanent the temporary rule allowing available EMS providers licensed or certified in another state or who have provisional certification by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) to obtain a short-term provisional license to practice as an EMS provider in Oregon with a licensed ambulance service or a registered EMS non-transporting agency, in a paid or volunteer status.
In response to passage of SB 52 (OL 2017, chapter 229), the Oregon Health Authority (Authority), Public Health Division has permanently amended and adopted rules in chapter 333, division 250 related to prehospital patient care reporting. These rules establish mandatory, electronic prehospital patient care data reporting for licensed ambulance service agencies. Ambulance service agencies are required to report a standardized set of patient encounter data to the Oregon Health Authority's, Oregon Emergency Medical Services Information System (OR-EMSIS) and rules identify requirements necessary for the use and disclosure of patient encounter and outcome data. Non-transporting EMS agencies that choose to voluntarily report patient encounter data and wish to receive hospital outcome data will be required to comply with the rules promulgated. Ambulance service agencies that have difficulty in obtaining necessary reporting software may request a temporary waiver from the Authority. The rules are effective January 1, 2018 and ambulance service agencies will have until January 1, 2019 to come into compliance.
