Project Description

S-HELP is a people, process and technological solution to emergency situations. The central aim of the S-HELP project is to develop a holistic framed approach to healthcare preparedness, response and recovery.

Abstract

Large-scale disasters do not respect borders, a lot of people will die and the long-term consequences from economic to mental health can for years devastate the affected population. Healthcare practitioners and services respond to emergency situations but they are sometimes overwhelmed often requiring rapid decision-making. The S-HELP Decision Support System (DSS) will provide a unique mechanism to assist stakeholders and end-users to work together for coordinated, effective and evidence-based decisions at all stages of emergency management. The tools delivered by S-HELP will result in improved preparedness and response of health services involved in large scale and/or cross border emergency situations.
