Accepted Abstracts

Medicine 2.0'09 (Toronto, Canada)

Twitt-ER: Using Twitter in The E.R. for Dispatch, Order Com, Patient Alerts and Progress Reports towards the Waiting Room.
Christophe Robert Laurent*

An effort is made in our E.R. to channel the work flow, to smoothen the sometimes chaotic processes which take place in the E.R., where the most unexpected is always very probable to happen. Because of the shortage of E.R. Physicians in Belgium (as in many surrounding countries) our doctors have to carry out very diverse tasks, on many categories of patients. It is however the triage nurse and a process coordinating nurse who dispatch patients and tasks towards the physicians, so as to ...

Medicine 2.0'10 (Maastricht, NL)

The Use of Personally Controlled Health Records as a Tool for Patient Participation in Preemptive Disaster Management During Mass Gatherings.
Christophe Robert Laurent*

Background In mass events, the organization possesses databases containing the tickets sold, and the buyers. Most attendants to big manifestations today pay by electronic means for their participation. This implies that the organization has a database which contains names of attendants. During disaster scenarios and medical emergencies (e.g. a stadium collapse at soccer match, or a concert venue evacuation because of a bomb threat), and certainly mass casualty emergencies, identification a...

Mobile Web Enabled Check-in of Patients at the Emergency Room: a Win.Win.Win Method Featuring Active Patient Participation and Collaboration.
Christophe Robert Laurent*, Stefaan Debrauwer*

Background Emergency Rooms (ER) all over the world are being flooded by people seeking medical attention. Managing incoming information is a growing challenge for safety and efficiency. Triage has a limited influence on the ER process, as it does not promote efficient processing as much as it attributes an accurate degree of emergency. All information that contributes to an adequate determination of the emergency and/or improves the process in the ER, is considered valuable by the medical t...

Mobile Web ER-referral for General Practioners: Improving Communication and Collaboration in Emergency Medicine.
Stefaan Debrauwer*, Christophe Robert Laurent*

Background Often in Emergencies at home, patients in Western Europe are still seen by a Primary Care Physician, Family Physician or General Practitioner. They refer the patient to the Emergency Room (ER) in a number of ways. To date, in Belgium, these often “paper-only” referrals are often inefficient. An easily accessible web form is conceived and implemented so as to change this. We developed a way to increase the efficiency (easier sending as well as easier and more certain receiving)...

Can Social Media Modelled Non Interruptive Communication in Critical Medicine Environments, Improve Patient Outcome?
Christophe Robert Laurent*

Background: The advances patients are making in collaboration, participation, and empowerment in health care are greatly linked to what is called the “power” of social media. On the other hand, a number of problems that are documented in critical medicine, such as the Emergency Department (ED) or the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are related to the unforeseeable dynamics of the work. This makes efficient and safe communication an important necessity and a top priority to process an ever inc...

Augmented Disaster Driven Apomediation: Pre-Determined Hash Tags as a Potential Additional Omnidirectional Information Source During and after an Unexpected Event at Mass Gatherings.
Christophe Robert Laurent*

Background During the storm that occurred at the Pukkelpop music festival in Belgium in 2011, many were wounded, several lost their lives. Because additional mobile cellular towers or Cells On Wheels (COW’s) are not used in Belgium, mobile connections as well as texting were impossible during and after the disaster. Limited availability of data communications and the growing ubiquitousness of smart phones created a social media hyperactivity. Most of this “chatter” was aimed at orien...

Wexelblat Apomediation: The Use of Human Technology Enhanced Non Interruptive Communication in the Form of Social Media towards Convergence of Information in Case of an Incident with Multiple or Mass Event
Christophe Robert Laurent*, Stefaan Debrauwer

Lately, mobile social media are increasing the levels and nature of communication at mass events. Certainly during disasters occuring at such occasions, the activity increases enormously. Both visitors and organizers are making increasing use of social media technology and communication to coordinate their moves. The authors would like to elaborate on the fact that a new phenomenon is arising. The participation and collaboration efforts of people attending the events is rapidly crystallizi...

Upgrading Tetra Communication with Social Media Style Text Message Flow Allows “Lean" Operational Management and Communications for Emergency and Disaster Coordination in Europe.
Jindra Otzipka*, Christophe Robert Laurent*

In disaster coordination, pagers are resurfacing as a secure and dependable means of communication. Two elements seem to be key in this phenomenon: 1. The actual technological background enables more penetrance of the signal. 2. The non-interruptive aspect does not require a one on one contact of command with each operative. This aspect is also a strongly present in social media. Tetra (http://www.tetra-association.com/) now uses a non-interruptive type of communication to transmit work or...

Medicine 2.0'13 (London, UK)

Combining Retweets and Hashtags to Create an Ad Hoc Communication Platform During the Course of Planned Events, Increasing Resilience of Visitors by Crowdsourcing a Permutation of Conversation.
Christophe Robert Laurent*

It is very important to understand, that from a medical and operational point of view, there is a great difference between the preparation for, and approach of an adverse event during the course a Mass Event, such as a rock festival, and the general preparation and approach of a random unexpected event in a random social situation, such as a train crash at a random site, in an unannounced city or other community. A great deal of effort is going into the structuring and rationalization of ...

Medicine 2.0'14 Summit & World Congress (Maui, Hawaii, USA)

The Use of an Omnipresent Array of Dynamic QR Codes to Establish Bidirectional Multi Platform Social Media Communication and Conversation Between Visitors and Organizers During Mass Events.
Christophe Robert Laurent*, Stefaan Debrauwer, Raf Fransen

Most known formats of communication of citizens with authorities during calamities or adverse events are governed by long established methods or models, and still depend mainly on dependable, established and trusted channels. In case of a medical emergency, people do not start calling around for an ambulance, but call the trusted 911 number on the telephone or cellphone. Pilots use a format for their communication when signaling they are in trouble, just as ship captains use a radio, and a t...
