Bellini, P., Boncinelli, S., Grossi, F. et al. (2013). Mobile Emergency, an Emergency Support System for Hospitals in Mobile Devices: Pilot Study. JMIR Research Protocols. 2(1): e19.
The authors discuss communicating among medical personnel during disasters and highlight findings from the use of a mobile emergency application (which is not available anymore) and server device to cope with emergencies and facilitate all the related activities and communications (e.g., tracking patients, contacting others, and guiding medical personnel with help from the command center). The research was conducted in Italy, but may be useful to healthcare practitioners and planners in other countries to suggest system features or development ideas.
