Expected outcomes

Created on Friday, 10 October 2014

COncORDE will provide:

 

.... a patient-centred emergency management system...

The use of technology in COncORDE is patient-centred -  it is there to enable responders to better meet the needs of a person requiring emergency medical team input.

 

... applicable in different health systems...

Putting the patient needs in the centre of the work will enable the COncORDE solution to be valid across different health systems and their local specifics. It will provide customisable interoperable solutions to support the principle tasks that emergency medical responders perform, irrespective of which health systems they work in and what the locally preferred approaches and algorithms are.

 

.... and in any type and size of emergencies....

COncORDE will serve the purpose to support emergency medical professionals during any kind of emergency - from every day small incidents to large scale disasters and to do this while using the tools and the rules they usually work with.

 

... that helps emergency responders  act faster and wiser to save more lives....

There is a myriad of technology solutions that are used in other fields, such as aviation, military or leisure, which could significantly improve information flow, coordination and decisions in emergency response and contribute to saving lives.

 

... within their accustomed work flows...

The challenge is to identify which existing technologies and approaches can be integrated in an innovative way to seamlessly fit into existing work flows to help responders "better do what they usually do".  

 

... by coordinating their resources better.... with the added power of the community....

In parallel to improving health outcomes, the COncORDE solutions will also ensure that the resources available to a given health system for emergency response are used more effectively. The system takes coordination of resources to an even higher level by employing smart approaches to harness the power of resilient communities and increase the capacity for response beyond the resources provided to a given health system.

 

.... and the ability to learn, prepare and improve response. 

Finally, the project will also aim to provide a tool to capture how each emergency situation unfolds, the incoming information, the emergency response and decisions made and keeping track of victims for the purposes of evaluation, audit and training and collection of real-life evidence of best approaches, which is difficult to gather at present.

Act Fast - Be Smart - Save Lives
