Washington, D.C. Partners with biospatial

The District of Columbia Department of Health becomes the twenty-eighth state EMS Office to partner with biospatial

The District of Columbia Department of Health (DC Health) has completed Data Use and Analytics agreements to become the twenty-eighth state emergency medical services (EMS) office to partner with biospatial, Inc. Biospatial uses EMS and health-related data sources to provide timely, national-scale syndromic detection, real-time trending, and alerts to syndromic anomalies critical to the nation’s health and safety. DC Health is now submitting National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) electronic patient care records (ePCRs) to the biospatial platform to assist in national preparedness and enhance DC Health’s ability to visualize its data with other data layers of relevance.

“One of the largest challenges with healthcare data is translating it into actionable items that allow us to make a difference,” said J. Sam Hurley, Senior Deputy Director, Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Administration. “Biospatial’s robust analytical platform will enable DC Health to better utilize existing EMS data to improve the health and safety of the residents and visitors to the District.”

Biospatial develops partnerships with state and local data owners to bring health-related data into the biospatial platform; in turn, biospatial provides data owners access to data visualization tools, syndromic surveillance and alerting, summary dashboards, and clinical and operational reporting at no cost. Users at local, state, regional, and national levels use the biospatial platform tools to support near real-time biosurveillance, preparedness and response, syndromic and opioid surveillance, and automotive safety missions.
