This book brings together contributions from 33 subject matter experts (SMEs) in 16 chapters who discuss concepts (location-based Hazard Vulnerability Assessment, understanding spatial factors in workplace violence, tracking nosocomial infections, logistics of supplies and resources), applications (trauma center siting, mass casualty incident planning, enterprise GIS, evacuation and sheltering, prehospital and disaster response) and case stories (flu preparedness, vulnerable populations, needs assessment during natural disasters, regionalized incident planning, and integration of EMS and hospital response). The objective of this book is to show how hospitals and healthcare are benefiting from the use of GIS to improve their emergency management and disaster preparedness mandates and responsibilities.
