  • As there are more stakeholders, sharing information becomes exponentially more complicated.Sometimes the problem isn’t not enough Information, but too much information (Drinking from a Firehose) – esp. with social mediaWhat’s the solution?
  • Look at 2 hospitals wanting to share information.1. Maybe they have their own computer systems – but maybe they are different systems (private/public hospitals, hospitals in different regions) – it’s hard to standardise HMIS.2. They need to share information – so maybe they pick up the phone, or send an email3. This may work for 2 hospitals, but what about 10, 100?
  • Data standards allow computers to talk to each other – across different systems.
  • What’s the solution?
  • Triage ApplicationLost Person Finder
  • Disaster Rick Reduction WebsiteGeographic data such as the cyclone tracks can be imported from other systems
  • Located approximately 100 hospitals within 24 HoursUsed by Haitian Ministry of Health and the Pan American Health Organization
  • Why wait until a disaster/pandemic?Prepare by collecting this information Crowdsourcing – like wikipedia – but emphasise “trusted network”
  • Why wait until a disaster?
