Mass Casualty, Mass Evacuation, or Daily Events
Step One: Patient Intake
- Patient Record is first created using a portable scanner.
- Patient is given a barcoded triage tag (works with all major triage tags, including LaserBand ).
- Triage tag is scanned, along with key patient information.
- Patient photograph is captured and stored.
- Can occur at the incident scene or at a hospital.
- DMS recommends barcode technology, however RFID is available.
Step Two: Patient Data Transfer
- Information is sent to local PC via wireless or batch upload.
- PC connects to internet and patient data is sent to EOCs, Red Cross, Hospitals and/or other agencies.
- Multiple wide area connection options, including CDMA, GSM, Satellite dish or satellite phone, WiMax, and mesh networks.
- Hospitals can be informed of the number and status of incoming patients.
- Decisions on where to route patients can be made based upon real time data on patient counts and hospital bed availability.
- Families can be more quickly notified of the status and location of their loved ones.
Step Three: Patient and Incident Reports
- Easily configurable system allows for custom reports, queries and forms without costly, time consuming programming changes.
- Attach data to other systems web service, XML or flat file for inter-agency communication.
