Medical Transport

Understanding and supporting human evidence based decision making for emergency medical transport

The objective of this project is to design a decision support tool to aid emergency transport dispatch in selecting modes of transportation. Historical data on both air and land ambulance operations will be utilized to predict patient time to definite care (i.e., delivery of patient to receiving hospital). An interface will be designed which will provide the information needed by dispatch operators to make time-critical decisions under uncertainty. Project in conjunction with Dr. Russell MacDonald (ORNGE, University of Toronto).
