Disater Medicine Imagery

The Disaster Medicine IOPEX will use Full Dive VR technology to establish a hospital and its surrounding community in virtual reality during a mass casualty event. Hospital emergency staff, emergency medical technicians and law enforcement officers and surrogate patients (provided by medical schools) will participate (remotely via cloud computing) in the IOPEX scenarios.

Improving Disaster Medicine Outcome

The IOPEX will include experimental factors and metrics to determine what operational and environmental configurations contribute to successful emergency care. The outcome of the Disaster Medicine IOPEX Pilot will be data-driven recommendations for improving hospitals’ emergency care (and disaster medicine) techniques and systems.
