Don’t Lose Track: Virginia’s Patient Tracking System

Developed by the Patient Tracking workgroup and funded through the ASPR Hospital Preparedness Program, this video shows how a mass causality incident (MCI) can result from any emergency or disaster and can have a severe impact on first responders, healthcare facilities, and the public. The severity of the MCI can result in victims being transported to different facilities and families being separated. It highlights the patient tracking capabilities across the Commonwealth of Virginia and intends to show the stages of patient tracking, beginning with triage tags at the scene, through the VHASS Patient Tracking module at the healthcare facility and through family reunification when 2-1-1 Virginia is activated.
