Florida Regional Domestic Security Task Forces Select Joint Everbridge and Medworxx Incident Notification & Command Solution



    
    Integrated Hospital Emergency Readiness Platform Improves Emergency
    Preparedness and Response
    

    LOS ANGELES, CA and TORONTO, ON, May 19 /CNW/ - Everbridge (formerly 3n
Global), the world's recognized leader in incident notification systems, and
Medworxx, the makers of healthcare solutions for decision support, compliance
and education, today announced that their integrated advanced incident command
solution (ICS) for hospitals has been adopted throughout significant portions
of Regions 2 and 3 of the Florida Regional Domestic Security Task Forces
(RDSTF), encompassing the North Central and Northeastern portions of the
state.
    Funded by the Florida Department of Health (DOH) to enhance hospital
response and interoperable communications, the project - which combines the
Everbridge emergency notification platform with the Medworxx Emergency
Readiness System - supports National Incident Management System (NIMS)
compliance and key requirements from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for
Preparedness and Response (ASPR).
    After evaluating several solution providers, hospitals and healthcare
organizations in Regions 2 and 3 of the Florida RDSTF selected the integrated
Everbridge/Medworxx joint solution based on comprehensive system criteria
provided by the DOH, including:

    
    -  Ability to share information, collaborate across regions and provide
       real-time situational awareness
    -  Usability and inter-facility integration
    -  Support of federal standards: NIMS capabilities, ASPR priority sub-
       capabilities and Joint Commission Standards of Care
    -  Support of planning and preparedness activities: hazard vulnerability
       analysis (HVA) preparation, emergency operations plan (EOP) drills and
       disaster preparedness training exercises
    -  Data collection, management and real-time, automated reporting of
       critical assets
    

    "In assessing hospital communication systems, the First Coast Disaster
Council looked at how solutions would support critical response functions
within facilities, across the community and throughout RDSTF-3," said Tony
Suszczynski, Disaster Preparedness Coordinator for Shands Jacksonville Medical
Center. "By offering everyday utility to our facility through the ICS
functionality of Medworxx integrated with the powerful emergency
communications system of Everbridge, the Everbridge/Medworxx system provided
the most comprehensive solution for our region's needs. Leveraging the
technology of the combined system will greatly enhance the emergency
preparedness and response capabilities of our facility and region - it is a
major step ahead."
