Real-time Operational Reporting for H1N1 Response
Depiction and Situational Awareness
Community Health Officials around the world are busy building their plans for responding to the H1N1 crisis, involving government organizations, medical facilities, non-profit agencies and many, many volunteers. Some communities have moved from H1N1 planning to operations and are running priority-based vaccination clinics. And soon Health Officials may transition to implementing Pandemic Response Plans, involving activation and management of alternate care and temporary hospital facilities.
The effectiveness of all of these ongoing and future H1N1 operations depends heavily on real-time information-sharing and coordination among the many decision-makers involved, so that resources are managed and services are delivered in a timely and efficient manner.
And it’s this problem of providing for real-time information sharing and coordination that has been one of the most difficult to solve--but no longer. Depiction mapping software solves this challenging problem; and in a straightforward, easy to implement, innovative and inexpensive way.
