EMS Performance Improvement Center
Who We Are

The EMS Performance Improvement Center is a satellite office housed within the Emergency Medicine Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The center is research oriented and funded through contracts, subcontracts, grants and agreements. Although the EMS Performance Improvement Center operates as an independent off-site entity in regards to routine and non-routine matters, it is linked for the purposes of state-wide coordination with the UNC Health Care System, Department of Emergency Medicine, and the lead facilities in multiple states including, the North Carolina Office of EMS (NCOEMS), the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC), the West Virginia Office of EMS (WVOEMS) and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH). Through these venues, all counties within the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Mississippi are linked to the EMSPIC seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, in a variety of cutting-edge IT programs aimed towards comprehensive pre-hospitalization trauma and disaster services, coordination, policy-making, regulation, and research.

The EMSPIC develops, maintains and supports several inter-connected and extremely complex web based state-wide applications. These include

Prehospital Medical Information System (PreMIS)
Credentialing Information System (CIS)
State Medical Asset Resource Tracking Tool (SMARTT)
EMS Performance Improvement Toolkits
PreMIS, CIS, SMARTT, and the EMS Toolkits together are coined the EMS Data System. The North Carolina EMS Data System is fully implemented and operational within North Carolina and is currently in use by over 700 NC EMS agencies and 40,000 EMS personnel. Within North Carolina, the PreMIS system collects an estimated 1,000,000 EMS call reports per year, containing well over 200 data elements per record. In 2008 the EMSPIC initiated contracts to implement an EMS Data System within the states of South Carolina and West Virginia and by January 2010, the EMS Data System was fully implemented within these states and is in use by over 100,000 EMS personnel. It collects over 2,000,000 EMS records annually through daily data submission by every EMS agency encompassing these three states.

Today this 10,000 square foot facility houses a 48 foot long by 16 foot wide by 14 foot tall Accu-Draft paint booth that was custom manufactured in Italy. This building is where the lion share of the remount process takes place. Additionally cabinet manufacturing, modification, custom wiring, custom paint and graphics are all performed here in a turnkey process for our customer's emergency vehicles.
