Mission

Creating innovative solutions to save lives in medical emergencies...

The Advanced Health and Disaster Aid Network (AID-N) develops and provides technology-based solutions to enable medical personnel at large-scale incidents to more efficiently triage, track, and transport patients while sharing the most accurate and real-time patient information.  By using technologies including ad-hoc wireless networks, web portals, electronic triage tags, and wearable vital sign sensors, AID-N dramatically enhances collaboration between personnel at all levels of the emergency response community and ensures that all patients are accounted for.  The AID-N solution has great potential for improving today’s emergency response system, especially in mass casualty situations.
