Poison Control Centers

Brief Description
Working with the State Emergency Medical Services Authority, NHF was instrumental in developing a RFP and a technology plan for the creation of a single poison control system in California. The new system became operational and replaced six autonomous centers that operated in various regions of the state. The advantages of a statewide poison control system are a single 800 number for consumers that can be broadly publicized and the efficiencies created by advanced telecommunications and computer integration. The California Statewide Poison Control System toll free number is 800-876-4766.
