Based in South Florida, Advanced Technical and Educational Consultants (ATEC) specialize in providing design, development and delivery of state-of-the-art Department of Defense chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE), emergency services and emergency management training and exercises. They were looking for a system that would allow their clients to be able to track and account for patients during a mass casualty event.
App Maisters’ team was required to develop an application that’s user friendly and be able to effectively track patients using some sort of radio frequency bands and QR codes when they pass through certain checkpoints. The objective was to find a solution that assist emergency responders to account for patients during a mass casualty event and also evaluate performance of emergency responders in managing triage, treatment and transport activities in a mass casualty event.
One of the key challenge to overcome was the integration of the RFID Scanner (Gorkit) SDK with the customized application and also to improve server response time so that the responders can scan 10-15 devices in a minute.
App Maisters development specialist sat with ATEC stakeholders and look at several RFID bands and scanning solution and choose UGrokit for the scanning platform to scan RFID and QR codes. Our design team also worked closely with the client to ensure that app user interfaces are graphically appealing and the interfaces flows well between screens.
The app successfully measure/record specific date and time of a patient that moves past at any given check point by scanning his/her arm band that is integrated with an RFID chip.
In addition, we also provided QR code within the app that can also be used as a scanning device if needed. The system stored all the information and organized around google docs which was being displayed on large screen monitors to identify the location these patients at a given time and also helped successfully evaluate performance of emergency responders in managing triage, treatment and transport activities. The project was delivered within time and budget.
