Data Submission Application

Pursuant to OCEMS Policy 300.32, EMS Providers may utilize the OC-MEDS Hub as their organizational Patient Care Reporting System (PCRS) or may submit data from their own third party PCRS provided that their PCRS complies with Federal, State, and Local standards. To determine which method will be used, each EMS Provider must complete and submit an OC-MEDS Data Submission application to initiate the implementation process.

The application is completed entirely online through the OC-MEDS Licensing and Certification System.
