Upp Technology IRMS Emergency Support Teams Assist States in Distributing Swine Flu Drugs
Downers Grove, IL – Just 24 hours after the Center for Disease Control's H1N1 virus "Swine Flu" Alert, Upp Technology, the leading provider of Emergency Management Solutions for statewide public health officials, activated and deployed six regional Emergency Support Teams to help states prepare for the receipt and distribution of the CDC's bulk movement of the flu-fighting drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza. Officials said the drugs have been shown to be quite effective, especially if taken early in the course of the disease.
Most states utilize Upp Technology's irms|GOKIT™ Mobile Logistics Platform which moves with emergency responders and is pre-configured with the irms|EM™ Emergency Management system. This allows first responders to have complete control over the receipt, staging, and mobilization of emergency pharmaceuticals, supplies, and equipment. The solution also includes pre-configured CBRNE models, vendor managed inventory, fatality management, GPS tracking, and patient tracking and triage. The irms|EM system also manages the distribution of Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) push packs through PODs where individualized distribution of vaccines to patients are recorded and transmitted back to a state's public health information network, as well as enabling automated CDC Doses Administered Reporting.
