“Decision Support Tools

for Effective Health Emergency Management”

22 November 2016

Hotel Radisson Blu Par, Athens, Greece





IMPRESS and COncORDE invite you to: Decision Support Tools for Effective Health Emergency Management.

A co-workshop organized by the IMPRESS project and the COncORDE project to give a unique insight into the future of emergency response.

Decision Support Tools for Effective Health Emergency Management will be presented and demonstrated live.



Impress is developing a consolidated concept of operations, to effectively manage medical resources, prepare and coordinate response activities, supported by a Decision Support System, using data from multiple heterogeneous sources. It will assist health services in becoming more proactive, better prepared and interoperable with other emergency response organizations.


COncORDE Project

At present, no single region-wide Emergency Medical System model exists for EU Member States.

COncORDE aims to provide a tool that can be used in all member states, irrespective of their local differences, to achieve an EU wide impact in improving coordination of emergency medical response.

A web-based platform will be developed to support and enhance the existing decision processes during medical emergencies at local, regional and cross-border level, from small incidents to large scale emergency situations.


Who should attend?

The workshop is open to all practitioners in incident management and emergency health service providers.
