ThotWave Technologies Release: thinking data(R) Event System Empowers Emergency Medicine Information Services

CARY, N.C., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- ThotWave Technologies today announced its application of the thinking data(R) Event System for North Carolina's emergency medicine information system PreMIS ( ).

PreMIS is a pre-hospital medical records system funded by the State of North Carolina and developed by the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in conjunction with ThotWave and other partners. PreMIS encompasses efficient mechanisms to collect incident records from EMS providers throughout the state. This data is then used for bio-terrorism surveillance, provider reports, and billing support.

ThotWave, a SAS Alliance Partner, developed the thinking data Event System to monitor and manage complex processes involving the SAS(R) System. Within PreMIS, the Event System is used to control the sequence of extract, transform, and load (ETL) steps that refresh the PreMIS data warehouse. The system also monitors the ETL process for errors and warnings.

Todd Hatley, PreMIS Executive Director, said "The value of PreMIS revolves around providing aggregate information and analysis of emergency medical data. We expect the data warehouse designed by ThotWave to be a tremendous enabler of our capability to conduct bio-terrorism surveillance and deliver useful management reports to EMS providers."

"We tried to be sensitive to the needs of a publicly funded organization to do more with less," said Jeff Wright, Chief Technology Officer for ThotWave. "Not only does the Event System free system administration resources from having to routinely check the ETL process, it provides a foundation for all sorts of proactive information delivery."

ThotWave has been part of the SAS Alliance program for many years, which provides access to SAS technology and training as a trusted partner. "ThotWave consistently excels in delivering solutions at the highest SAS standards," said Don McDougall, Vice President of the Customer Solutions and Alliances division at SAS. "We are pleased to see yet another example of how ThotWave is helping clients reach their performance goals."
