Whitepaper: A Cross-Functional Service-Oriented Architecture to Support Real-Time Information Exchange in Emergency Medical Response

by New Jersey Institute of TechnologyJan 01, 2008

Real-time information communication presents a persistent challenge to the emergency response community. This paper from New Jersey Institute of Technology describes a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) that uses shared data models of emergency incidents to support the exchange of data between heterogeneous systems. This architecture is employed in the Advanced Health and Disaster Aid Network (AID-N) system, a testbed investigating information technologies to improve interoperation among multiple emergency response organizations in the Washington DC Metropolitan region. This architecture allows one to enable real-time data communication between three deployed systems.
