Abstract We present a decision support system for the allocation of traumatized patients. The assignment of patients to vehicles and hospitals is a task that requires detailed up-to-date information but has to be carried out quickly. We pro-pose to support medical staff with an IT system. We especially encourage such a system to be used in cases of mass incidents as it is very problematic – yet essential – To provide all injured with adequate healthcare as fast as possible. Our proposal is a system based on business rules. In this paper we describe the development project's background as well as the system's requirements and some details of its implementation. Moreover, we explain an exemplary scenario to show strengths of our approach. Besides discussing related work, we draw an overview of future tasks.
