New Connection Required to Consume HHS emPOWER in GIS Applications

EMS News

New Connection Required to Consume HHS emPOWER "CMS Electricity-Dependent Data" in GIS Applications  

Many EMS agencies, along with other first responders, currently consume the HHS emPOWER Map (also known as "CMS electricity-dependent") GIS REST Service in their GIS applications to inform and support emergency preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities for electricity-dependent populations that reside independently in their communities. 

Effective February 12, 2019, ASPR updated the name of the HHS emPOWER Program's Representation Transfer (REST) Service to align with the other HHS emPOWER Program tools and resources. This REST Service, provided via ASPR's GeoHEALTH Platform, allows users to consumer the HHS emPOWER Map data layer in their own geographic information (GIS) application. 

The data layer displays the total number of at-risk Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare beneficiaries that rely upon life-maintaining and saving electricity-dependent medical equipment and cardiac devices (e.g. oxygen concentrators, electric wheelchairs) in a geographic area, down to the ZIP code. Please notify all of your emergency response partners and GIS analysts that they must go to the new HHS emPOWER REST Service here to connect to the new link and end points. In doing so, partners will be able to continue to gain population-level situational awareness of electricity-dependent populations in their own GIS applications.
