DHS/ALL/PIA-040 Electronic Patient Care Reporting System

The DHS Office of Health Affairs (OHA) is implementing a web-based Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) Internet software service called the Electronic Patient Care Reporting System (ePCR). The ePCR system will establish a standardized approach to document care rendered by DHS Emergency Medical Services (EMS) medical care providers in pre-hospital environments. The system will also enhance OHA’s capability to evaluate quality of care delivery, quality assurance, performance improvement, and risk management activities. OHA conducted this privacy impact assessment because accurate documentation and quality assurance of EMS care provided necessarily includes gathering personally identifiable information (PII) from patient encounters.
