TriagePic® is designed for use by hospital staff to aid in reuniting friends and family with mass disaster victims brought in for triage and hospitalization.
Following a mass disaster event, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, or other man-made events, the hospitals are inundated with victims and are busy caring for the wounded. Meanwhile friends and family of the victims are fervently searching for them. To help address family reunification needs for such victims, the National Library of Medicine has developed TriagePic® -- a reporting and tracking tool that allows hospital staff to capture photos and brief information (name, age, gender, etc.) on disaster victims as they arrive at the hospital. The information on victims is sent to a private local hospital database for use by appropriate staff for family reunification purposes.
The app is designed for use on iPhone, iPad,and iPod Touch,
The TriagePic app and Triagetrak Web site are products of the Lost Person Finder project (http://lpf.nlm.nih.gov) at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, which is an intramural R&D division of the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
