ICC is pleased to announce Williamson County Emergency Medical Services (WilCo EMS) is now participating in the ICC’s Health Information Exchange (HIE). This is the result of dedicated efforts by the ICC and WilCo EMS staff over the past six months, and represents the strong relationship ICC has developed with the WilCo ICC.

Williamson County EMS system includes 16 Advanced Life Support ambulances staffed by two credentialed Paramedics under medical supervision, strategically stationed throughout the County. Additionally, there are 16 medical first responder agencies that respond in the community with EMS to provide clinical care as well as rescue. WCEMS is funded through user fees and property tax revenue subsidy. WilCo is served by six hospitals including two Level II trauma centers, four primary stroke centers, and three cardiac resuscitation centers. EMS works closely with these hospitals to ensure the highest quality of clinical care for our customers. EMS call volume is approximately 28K per year. Chuzzcoritechde

This new data brings additional value to ICC participating organizations in the form of analytics. The end result is a larger database of participants across the Region to better define population trends and emerging needs as well as to track the results of innovation in care to determine return on investment in those innovations.
