EMCC - Crisis Applications
In case of emergency (24/7):
Regional support capacity continued to be built in the second five – year program to enable interaction between Healthcare Coalition members, and emergency management officials in jurisdictions, public health, and the state. Some of these critical improvements supporting the Healthcare Coalition have included the development of robust crisis application tools that have enhanced regional communication, centralized data collection, emergency status tools, and alert / notification capability.
Implementation of standardized situational awareness, internet – based tools for communications, including EMResource, WebEOC, and LiveProcess continues to build. These systems have integrated healthcare providers into jurisdictional emergency management systems.
- Daily ED status and comments for hospitals and EMS assets
- Status interface among regional air medical organizations and their individual Computer Aided Dispatch systems
FACILITY STATUS Allows the user to edit their facility’s status and alert other facilities of unexpected closures to areas of the facility or to the entire facility. Addition area information can be noted in a comments box.
REGIONAL STATUS Provides an overview of all facilities’ diversion status. The top section of the window allows the user to select facility data criteria and the bottom section of the window displays records matching that criteria.
BED AVAILABILITY When an event is activated in the system, it allows users to update bed availability and provides an overview of that information to participating facilities throughout North Central Texas.
DOCUMENT LIBRARY Functions like an intranet for healthcare preparedness information. There is a global location for regional documents that can be stored and shared. Documents can be downloaded, printed, or saved to disk.
RESOURCE TRACKING Resources that each facility wants to track, such as PPE, ventilators, or radios, can be monitored for availability in an event.
REPORTSThere are several types of reports, allowing users pull information from the system. Reports can be run on status updates, agency availability and events. The reports are in PDF format for printing, or saving the reports.
ALERTING Performs text and email urgent event alerting, health alert broadcasting, missing persons and BOLO broadcasts. The alerts can be template based for more comprehensive information.
INTER-REGIONAL With the correct permissions and views, a user can view many regions. Most of the regions in the state and parts of southern Oklahoma have some type of coverage.
FACILITY STATUS Allows the user to edit their facility’s status and alert other facilities of unexpected closures to areas of the facility or to the entire facility. Items like HCC or Decontamination status is shown here.
REGIONAL STATUS Provides an overview of all facilities’ bed availability and diversion status. The top section of the window allows the user to select facility data criteria and the bottom section of the window displays records matching that criteria.
BED AVAILABILITY Allows users to update bed availability through the Hospital Medical Dashboard and provides an overview of that information to participating facilities throughout North Central Texas.
FILE LIBRARY Place where documents and forms can be placed for regional use. Quick start guides and exercise documents are examples of the types of documents posted.
SIGNIFICANT EVENTS Through the medical events boards (Local and TSA-E), agencies can monitor the significant events posted by peers or by the regional Medical Operations Center.
TSA-E TXETN This board was created to assist in patient tracking and management during no-notice emergency events. It allows for the tracking of a patient from the scene through EMS transfer to a facility.
EXERCISE MANAGEMENT NCTTRAC uses WebEOC to manage regional exercises through simulations and an exercise inject engine. This exercise play allows for NCTTRAC to help hospitals meet performance criteria.
TWIRP (STATEWIDE BOARDS) This area provides access to statewide information. Information such as Emergency Medical Task Force or Ambulance Strike Team availability is seen here. Statewide ESF-8 information is also posted in this area.
ICS/FEMA Forms All the ICS 200 forms and the FEMA 90 forms are available in this section. They are electronically enabled for quick data entry through a keyboard or printable for traditional pen based data
OTHER BOARDS AND FLEXABILITY There are other boards such as: Blood Supply, Critical Medications, Mission Tasks and NIMS compliance. WebEOC by its nature allows for rapid development of a board to capture information.
