Bambrick, A., Passman, D., Torman, R., et al. (2014). Optimizing the Use of Chief Complaint & Diagnosis for Operational Decision Making: An EMR Case Study of the 2010 Haiti Earthquake. PLoS Currents.

The authors share lessons learned, including the need to improve the EMR diagnosis categorization process since close to half of the records were missing medical data.
