Wisconsin WARDS State Bridge


   Wisconsin has a newly implemented, web-based, statewide data system called WARDS (Wisconsin Ambulance Run Data System). It gives Wisconsin's 458 agencies the flexibility to collect their own data and then upload to the state via XML or enter their runs via a web browser using an online run form.

The report writing feature allows agencies to define their own reports, publish them to several different formats, and schedule when the reports are to be run and delivered via email. This data mining tool is also available to the State for statistical analysis of the states 500,000+ annual runs.

Data entering into the system is scored utilizing a custom validity engine that analyzes the data for completeness. The WARDS system was developed for Wisconsin by ImageTrend, Inc.
