Networking Needs of Health Care During Disasters

Session Abstract

All disasters carry a health impact. The National Library of Medicine created the Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) to serve as a national resource for collecting, organizing and disseminating health information related to disasters. This Center also researches and test technologies that can play a role in collecting, organizing, and maintaining the access to health information before, during and after disasters. Managing disaster information for health purposes is becoming increasingly complex as the volume and sources of information are constantly increasing. Providing the right health information, just when is needed, where it's needed is often challenging, but especially so during times of disaster. The availability of a proper information and communications infrastructure is always essential for successfully managing the health impact of disasters. NLM will present its view of the data networking needs of health care during disasters, and collect input from the Internet2 community about the role of advanced networks in this context. This interactive session is meant to stimulate the dialog between the disasters, health and advanced networking communities towards improving the information infrastructure for health care during disasters.
