A critical aspect of effective disaster response is developing plans and policies that are evidence-based. To contribute to the expanding scientific knowledge base in emergency management, BHEPP is conducting research on activities that may help improve preparedness and response. BHEPP started a program of 11 research and development initiatives in 2008.

The overall BHEPP research goals are to:

  • Strengthen communications interoperability
  • Maintain information access during disaster
  • Support responder education

The BHEPP research program focuses on four areas of investigation:

  • Patient information management
  • Communications during disaster response
  • Information access during disaster response
  • Responder preparedness training
