Beyond Lucid Technologies is the first ambulance-based patient records company to achieve NEMSIS 3 compliance

January 8, 2014, CONCORD, CA – Beyond Lucid Technologies, manufacturer of the multi-award-winning MEDIVIEW™ electronic patient care record (ePCR) platform for use by Fire and Emergency Medical Service agencies, announced today that it has officially become the first field-use software to receive a coveted certification on version 3 of the National EMS Information System (“NEMSIS v3”).

This certification means that MEDIVIEW™ is currently the only field-use documentation system that complies with new digital documentation mandates that went into effect on January 1, 2014, starting a one-year grace period during which local EMS agencies in California and several other states must begin submitting digital electronic patient care records in the NEMSIS v3 data format.

According to Jonathon Feit, Co-Founder & CEO of Beyond Lucid Technologies: “We’re thrilled to have been the first ePCR firm to certify as NEMSIS v3 compliant, and applaud the innovation that the new system promises.  NEMSIS v3 is a leap toward interoperability between Fire/EMS agencies and the care facilities they serve, many of which are already adopting electronic health records.  Even in 2014, many hospitals still receive EMS data on a piece of paper in the emergency department.  But ambulances are the connective issue of the U.S. healthcare system, so making EMS data available digitally, in a robust and real-time fashion, will further CMS’s Triple Aim of better care, better health and lower costs.”
