OASIS Members and other interested parties,
OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of a new Committee Specification by the members of the OASIS Emergency Management TC:
Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) Tracking of Emergency Patients (TEP) Version 1.1
Committee Specification 01
20 January 2016
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.
About the TC:
The Emergency Management TC creates vendor-neutral, platform agnostic standards for organizations and agencies to more easily exchange emergency information.
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.
The TC welcomes participation from members of the emergency management and response community, developers and implementers, and members of the public concerned with disaster management and response.
