EMSTARS Policies & Procedures

Participation in EMSTARS

Participation in the EMSTARS program, and the transmission of electronic incident level data from EMS Providers to Florida Department of Health, is voluntary. However, EMS Providers whom have chosen to participate in data exchange with the Florida Department of Health and the EMSTARS database must adhere to all the policies and procedures in the Florida Data Dictionaries (v3.3.4 or v3.4). The complete provision of incident level data, and full participation in the EMSTARS Program, fulfills EMS Provider prehospital reporting requirements stipulated in subsection 64J-1.014(1), F.A.C.
