The Louisiana Bureau of EMS is pleased to announce the launch of our new Information Management System, commonly referred to as “The Portal.” In development for a year, the new portal is robust, reliable, and user-friendly.

All existing licensing data was transferred from the previous licensing portal (emsbridge or ImageTrend) to the new portal. All users of the previous licensing portal will need to claim their license or account, before utilizing the new portal.

While all existing licensing data was transferred, the existing agency data was found to be out of date. In order to populate the new portal system with accurate data, all EMS agencies (service and educational) are required to create new agency profiles.

The new portal is web-based and is found at https://labems.ldh.la.gov. The portal may be accessed from any internet-enabled device, using any current internet browser. For users, specific “How to…” documents have been developed and can be found on the BEMS website: http://ems.dhh.la.gov.
