Patient Data Exchange

Transferring patients from one hospital to another is a laborious process that, in a disater, can take time and important resources away from response efforts. This project devised a digital solution could improve response by reducing transfer time and allowing practicioners to communicate common patient data in a disaster. Document standards such as C32 and the NHIN Core Content Specification were leveraged to specify a minimum data set required for patient transfer and treatment, and subsequently develop a software solution.
