Affidavit Needed for Emergency Health Care Run Data
The Office of EMS Trauma Systems is asking EMS providers to submit an affidavit to attest that a good faith effort was made to submit calendar year (CY) 2018 emergency health care run data to the Texas EMS Trauma Registry and to reconcile potential discrepancies between emergency health care runs recorded by individual EMS providers during CY 18 and the number of emergency health care runs reflected in the Texas EMS Trauma Registry Report. If the reported run lacks required data elements or includes an incompatible format, the run data may be inconsistent with the emergency health care run report.
