Image of a graph and eye glassesData runs the world. Data allows for policy and protocol changes and quality improvement to be performed. EMS Services and stakeholders can utilize data in a variety of ways. Nebraska aggregate data can be requested by using the Nebraska Aggregate Data Request Form.

The Nebraska Emergency Health System provides software that allows all ambulance services in the state to submit an electronic record to the State of Nebraska as is required by Nebraska Rules and Regulations. This system is called the electronic Nebraska Ambulance Rescue Service Information System or eNARSIS.

Nebraska Rules and Regulations, state that Nebraska is to meet the National Emergency Medical Service Information System (NEMSIS) standard. Currently, Nebraska can accept both 3.3.4 and 3.4 NEMSIS data information. Nebraska will fully transition to the NEMSIS 3.4 dataset January 1, 2019.  
The Nebraska data dictionary is currently inclusive of the 3.3.4 and 3.4 data elements and the most up to date Nebraska required data elements, Nebraska facility lists, Nebraska validity rules, and various documents related to the submittal of Nebraska pre-hospital data. 
Nebraska prehospital data is available to Nebraska hospitals through  the "Hospital Hub" system. Emergency Care Providers are required to ensure that the patient care record is entered into the eNARSIS system within 72 hours of completion of a run. The eNARSIS and Hospital Hub system are connected to allow patient care record to be available to hospitals where the patient was delivered allowing for the continuity of care between EMS patient care records and hospitals.
