OASIS members and other interested parties,
We are pleased to announce that the OASIS Emergency Management TC members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted it for a 15-day public review:
Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) Tracking of Emergency Patients (TEP) Version 1.1
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
07 August 2018
EDXL-TEP is an XML messaging standard primarily for exchange of emergency patient and tracking information from the point of patient encounter through definitive care admission or field 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.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts 17 August 2018 at 00:00 UTC and ends 31 August 2018 at 23:59 UTC.
This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
The prose specification document and related files are available here:
