Abstract Developing key state-wide indicators of Florida's health care system's public health capacity during the H1N1 Pandemic has been challenging. This demonstration outlines work to develop a key indicator of patient surge caused by the H1N1 outbreak. Further work to calibrate this measure and relate it to surge in other health care organizations is outlined.

Title Information needs and decision support in health and medical disasters Type Conference Article
Year 2008 Publication Proceedings of ISCRAM 2008 – 5th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2008

Abstract During a disaster, health and medical decision makers need accurate, timely information. However, it is seldom readily available to the right decision makers, at the right time. Quite a number of databases currently exist with information about health and medical organizations which decision makers need during a disaster. Some of these databases have functions that facilitate decision-making and communication before, during and after a disaster. In theory, linking several existing databases will supply this information. Also, other functions can be provided in one package for incident management and monitoring of the preparedness capacity of a State's health and medical systems. But, this has not happened yet in Florida. This research assessed the different users needs, defined the information required to make good decisions and is testing a pilot decision support system of linked databases.
