Most EMS agencies are now documenting EMS encounters using the NEMSIS V.3 data standard and transmitting these data to the NC state data repository now managed by ESO.
NC DETECT receives a subset of these data once daily, and we are working on revisions to the EMS syndromes to work with the new data elements we are receiving. One syndrome is currently available that tracks naloxone administrations.  To review these data for your jurisdiction, go to the Syndrome Line Listing Report and select EMS as the data source in the drop down menu. A statewide graph of EMS naloxone administrations by week is shown below.

You can also review EMS data without any classification into syndromes in the Basic Line Listing Report. Select EMS as the data source in the drop down menu.

Please note that these data are relatively complete going back to around May 2018. Searching earlier than May 2018 will provide unreliable results. To review historic EMS Data in NC DETECT, select PreMIS from the data source drop down menu.

The graphs below illustrate the data completeness across the EMS data for V.2 (2009-2018 available under the data source name  = PreMIS) and V.3 (May 2018 РPresent available under the data source name = EMS)

Please note that EMS agencies sending data to ESO in NEMSIS V.2 format after March 23, 2019 are NOT received by NC DETECT.
