David Crawford, Tia Gao
A Surveillance and Incident Reporting PDA (SIRP) is a handheld unit for medical field personnel to collect and report clinical information on sick or injured people during large public events. SIRP device contains a wireless transmitter and
a patient medical history card reader. SIRP wirelessly transmits data to the AID-N server and to other databases (including a syndromic surveillance database).
SIRP allows emergency responders to
- record the essential information of a patient at the disaster scene: including chief complaint, apparent syndromes, gender, age, current location, and location at the time of the injury or onset of illness. SIRP contains a patient medical
history card reader to help expedite this process.
- collect other disease information at the event, such as animal sicknesses, apparent environmental hazards, weather conditions, and more.
- record and review incident information: hazardous materials, maps of marked areas of the disaster scene
