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.
