 Practitioner Submission to EIC May 14, 2010
 Practitioner Submission to OASIS June 8, 2010
 TEP Voted within OASIS as a Work Product June 22, 2010
 TEP Sub-committee Created Within EM-TC subcommittee
  & Chairs Voted in (T. Grapes / D. McGarry) August 2010
 Plan to Engage Sub-Committee Work Beginning of Oct.
 MOU in-progress between OASIS and HL7 for standard
 Interagency MOU in-progress (privacy, adoption etc.)
   Background – TEP & TEC Messaging Standards

 The NASEMSO with many other agencies and
  organizations recognized the need for standards-based
  interoperability to realize the potential of the numerous
  patient tracking systems in existence or planned
 Introduced TEP to the DHS S&T Office for Interoperability
  and Compatibility (OIC), sponsor of the EDXL
  development process – a mature, proven process for
  developing cross-profession, practitioner-driven
  messaging standards
 Effort was Initiated by the PSG as the next EDXL Priority
 Helps close HITSP ER-EHR IS04 Gaps
 Supports HHS & DOD AHRQ Objectives
                    TEP & TEC Messaging Standards

 Requirements definition for Tracking of Emergency Patients and Tracking of
  Emergency Clients is occurring in two phases. TEP is in-process with the
  Practitioner Steering and Working Groups (PSG / SWG).

    Phase I - Tracking of Emergency Patients (TEP): An XML standard for
     exchange of emergency patient and EMS tracking information; to increase
     the effectiveness of emergency medical management, patient tracking
     and care, and family notification.

    Phase II - Tracking of Emergency Clients (TEC): Expands Phase I scope to
     support clients across the general population. TEC is aimed at more
     effective evacuation and services management, client tracking,
     Regulation, Re-unification, and use of assets for all Emergency clients.

                               Client: Generic term for any person displaced, evacuated,
                               sheltering in place, expired, and/or requiring medical attention –
                               i.e. Clients or customers of Emergency Services
                               Patient: A type of client requiring medical attention, being
                               medically evaluated; or a fatality .
   TEP Scope
 EDXL-TEP is an XML
  messaging standard for
  exchange of emergency patient
  and tracking information across
  the EMS emergency medical
  care continuum.
 TEP provides real-time
  information to responders,
  management and care facilities
  in the chain of emergency care
  and transport.
 Emergency / Disaster EMS, ED
  / Hospitals / Care Facilities,
  Emergency Management, Ops,
  Dispatch, Command
 Patient tracking information is
  exchanged from patient
  encounter (possibly re-using
  dispatch information) through
  admission or release.
 TEP also supports hospital
  evacuations and day to day
  patient transfers.

Tennessee NDMS Patient Movement Exercise
• Draft EDXL-TEP interoperability pilot inserted into the 2010
  National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) Patient Movement
  Full-Scale Exercise, with follow-on analysis and presentation
    • A live exercise using volunteer patients, driven by objectives of
      federal, state and local agencies and NDMS partner hospitals.
    • DHS OIC pilot the draft EDXL-TEP specification in a field exercise
      before submitting to the standards approval process
    • A hurricane makes landfall resulting in mass casualties requiring
      evacuation and medical treatment.
    • Patients were tracked utilizing five independent Patient Tracking
      systems from Maryland's BWI airport, to a Memphis triage area
      where an actual C-130 landed and deplaned patients. Patients
      were then tracked through triage and ambulance boarding,
      through arrival at one of 5 Memphis area hospitals.
