Xiong, W., Bair, A., and Sandrock, C. (2010). Implementing Telemedicine in Medical Emergency Response: Concept of Operation for a Regional Telemedicine Hub. Journal of Medical Systems. Volume 36, Issue 3, pp 1651-1660.
The authors developed and measured a model application in order to quantitatively analyze the potential health benefits of telemedicine in disaster response. They found that the model can support disaster response activities and enhance surge capacity, the speed and effectiveness of medical response, communications, and improve resource and operations planning, and situational awareness both internally within incident command and externally with the community.
