UPDATE NOTES from Beth, EMS data manager VDH
After significant review, it was discovered that in order to best support providers in accurate documentation of patient care reports, the Type of Call should be a manually selection. In doing this, providers will be able to choose the correct value this as they navigate the form. This change will be live in the NEMSIS 3.5 form only. You will see this change go live on Monday 11/14.
Patient Name/Date of Birth Missing When Record Imported to Billing Software
Current Reason or Status: Software Company Treating as Priority Issue, Reported by 1 Service Out of 37
For some incident records, the patient-specific information (such as the patient’s name) is not transmitting to the billing software. So far, only one service has reported this, and the ImageTrend Support team is treating this concern as a priority. Initial statements from Support indicate that the issue is software-based, and that the code in the background will need to be corrected by the Developers.
If you, any member of your team, or your billing people encounter any issues at all, please let me know! If the person who encounters the concern is able to take a screenshot of the problem, this would be enormously helpful for myself and the Support team.
