Improving Medical Disaster Decision-Making

Project Summary

The objective of this research project was to design a decision-making system for hospitals and other organizations to provide mutual aid during a medical disaster. Hospitals and other health service providers in Montgomery County, Maryland, have formed the Montgomery County Healthcare Collaborative on Emergency Preparedness (MOCEP). The participants have agreed to provide mutual aid in case of a medical disaster, which is an overwhelming incident that exceeds the effective response capability of a participating hospital.
