SUBJECT: 2020 Data Quality & Compliance Initiative 12VAC5-31-560-C

Virginia Administrative Code – EMS Regulations require every licensed EMS agency to submit Patient Care Records with the required minimum data set on a schedule established by the Office of EMS (OEMS) as authorized in §32.1-116.1 of the Code of Virginia.

Agencies can visit the Virginia Office of EMS website, select Regulation & Compliance, then select Data Compliance Report, to view your agencies compliance scores for the most recent 6 months.
Contact information for OEMS staff who can assist with correcting/updating your agencies data will be located on this page as well.

This report will provide each agency with information on their following measures:
• Agency Demographic Information (must be updated every calendar year)
• Agency Data Dictionary Compliance (data submitted matches what is required)
• 6 month Data Quality Scores (agency data submitted contains all required data fields)

If your agency utilizes a third party data vendor, please contact your vendor representative for assistance in submitting complaint data per EMS Regulations.

All agencies must be compliant by summer of 2020. Should your agencies compliance scores not be acceptable you will be contacted by your Regulation & Compliance Division - Program Representative.
