The goal of the EDXL-TEP project is to facilitate emergency information sharing and data exchange across the local, state, tribal, national and non-governmental organizations of different professions that provide emergency response and management services.
The purpose of EDXL-TEP is an XML messaging standard for exchange of emergency patient and tracking information during patient encounter through admission or release. TEP supports patient tracking across the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) care continuum, as well as hospital evacuations and patient transfers, providing real-time information to responders, Emergency Management, coordinating organizations and care facilities in the chain of care and transport.
The mission of the Emergency Management TC is to create incident and emergency-related standards for data interoperability. The Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) is a broad initiative to create an integrated framework for a wide range of emergency data exchange standards to support operations, logistics, planning and finance.
