While games continue to dominate the iPhone App Store, there is an ever-increasing number of serious applications becoming available for specialized niche markets.
One such application is MCI Triage from Tasmanian software developer, Island Software that specializes in software for emergency services.
MCI Triage is an iPhone App for paramedics, ambulance officers, firefighters, law enforcement, rescue and other emergency service personnel to help manage mass casualty incidents such as bus crashes, train wrecks, multi-vehicle pile-ups or any other incident where there is a large number of victims.
MCI Triage builds on the Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment (S.T.A.R.T.) system originally developed in 1983. Even if your MCI triage training was years ago, this application will prompt you through the process and ensure consistent and reliable information is gathered and made available to incident command.
With simple button prompts and on-the-fly calculation of triage categories, MCI Triage makes it easy to determine which color tag to use and it will automatically record each victim's condition as well as their age, gender and location. If time permits, you can also enter each victim's name or a brief description (e.g., "red t-shirt"). Each victim's location is automatically added to their record using the iPhone's built-in GPS.
At any time, you can flip to a Summary view to see the number of victims and how many are in each Category (Alpha, Bravo, Delta and Echo). Using the iPhone's mail application, you can email full details or an Incident Summary to incident control, EMS/fire/police dispatch, receiving medical facilities or anyone else who needs timely information on which to make decisions. The Incident Summary can also be sent by SMS to one or multiple mobile or cell phone numbers.
You can find MCI Triage in the Medical section of the iPhone App Store.
