Manage State Data Standards

As a DOH Administrator, you can manage a state's data standard. You can also change a department's NEMSIS data standard when a new NEMSIS data standard becomes available.

  4. For State's Primary Data Standard, select the Primary Data Standard (PDS) accepted for this state. The PDS is the main data standard supported by the state and can be selected from any of the active data standards in the State Data Standards table. This standard is applied as the default standard when creating Business Rules.

  5. In the State Data Standards section, click Add Data standard.

  6. Select the data standard to add for this state.

  7. For Acceptance start, set the date for when this data standard will start to be accepted.

  10. Repeat steps 5-9 for each data standard accepted by your state.

  11. Click Save.

Once a data standard has been added, you can edit it or deactivate it as needed. To edit the data standard, click its associated Edit link. To deactivate a standard, click its corresponding Deactivate link.
