ASPR Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Data Share with FL Department of Health

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. (2017). ASPR Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Data Share with FL Department of Health. (Contact fusion@hhs.gov for more information or to set up EMR data sharing capabilities.)

ASPR provided a de-identified data share of electronic medical record (EMR) data for patient encounters in the field to FL DOH. The data share process was piloted and tested successfully in 2014. Using the data share agreement in place, ASPR quickly re-tested the capability with FL DOH as Hurricane Matthew was approaching. When ASPR Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT) teams were deployed to provide medical support at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, FL, ASPR was able to provide an automated EMR data share (updated every 15 minutes) directly to FL DOH's surveillance system ESSENCE-FL. The ASPR DMAT mission was referenced in the "FL ESF8 Epi Surveillance Hurricane Matthew" report, as was an ASPR DMAT EMR patient encounter data table. Additionally, FL shared their full Epi Surveillance report for Matthew with HHS ASPR.
