Regional EMS System & RMCC


Regional EMS System

A multi-county system comprised of all hospitals, ambulance services, dispatch centers and related entities that functions as an interactive emergency health care network coordinated through a regional medical communications center (RMCC) for the purposes of providing medical information and coordinating patient movement and medical resources.


Regional Medical Communications Center

An RMCC is a state designated communications entity with a regional mission and focus that coordinates hospitals, ambulance services and other medical resources in real time, to optimize emergency patient care in situations where local governments and health care providers request assistance. RMCCs are authorized by TCA 68-140-201-208 and EMS Board rules 1200-12-1-08.
