The Washington State Department of Health will transition from the NEMSIS Version 3.4 to the 3.5 standard on January 1, 2023. By this date, all direct entry WEMSIS users will be upgraded to a 3.5 run form and all 3.5 data in WEMSIS will be exported to NEMSIS in the 3.5 format. Both WEMSIS and NEMSIS will no longer accept 3.4 data submissions after December 31, 2023.
We are aware not all EMS services will be able to submit 3.5 data to WEMSIS by the state implementation date for various reasons. If your EMS service will be unable to submit 3.5 data to WEMSIS by January 1, 2023, please submit this waiver.
