When a Mass Casualty Incident occurs, there are multiple issues faced by responders and many questions that need to be answered and shared with all those involved in the response. This can include Emergency Services Staff, fire, police, receiving hospitals, and multiple government agencies.
Triage-Plus overcomes these issues with a simple and easy-to-use system.
For those at the scene, Triage-Plus makes the process of initial triage easier and more consistent
regardless of who is performing the triage, by stepping the user through a simple triage process,
capturing vital patient information.
This critical information is provided to all agencies in real-time, from the point the patient is initially triaged,
right through to when they arrive at the receiving medical facility.
As information can be updated at any time, responders and agencies can monitor the evolving situation and
coordinate the response, planning resources and patient care to achieve the best possible patient outcomes.
The first stage in validating Triage-Plus was a multi-agency trial held at Burnham Military Camp outside of Christchurch, NZ in December 2021 with clinicians from multiple agencies to compare an existing manual triage system with Triage-Plus along with a 200 patient Emergo (https://www.emergotrain.com) exercise with multiple participants.
The second stage was the use of TrIage-Plus by HEMS staff from Garden City Aviation (GCH) when transporting patients from the prehospital environment through to the emergency department.
