The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate an evidence-based information technology application hospital administrators can use to assist with decision-making during the reverse-triage selection process in mass casualty incidents. The authors developed and used the “Reverse Triage Tool of Leuven” in a study, where they selected almost twice as many patients in the filtered group who qualified for early discharge compared with patients in the random group.
