SiteVision to Integrate Georgia911 with Emergency Alerting System

Roanoke, VA January 24, 2013:   The  Georgia911 effort is a Crisis Care website specifically designed to assist hospitals and related services in their disaster preparedness – whether natural or man-made. It is provided to members by the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA). The new effort will synchronize the existing online portal with an external emergency high-speed notification system provided by Twenty First Century Communications (TFCC).

SiteVision, who has worked closely with GHA on its existing system, will integrate the 3rd party emergency alerting system with the web portal – thus allowing GHA hospital and affiliated members to receive SMS messages from the TFCC alerting system. All GHA911 members will also be contacts in the TFCC system allowing them to receive emergency text messages as they are issued. The integration permits GHA911 members to be synchronized with and participate in the alerting system without having to keep track of multiple logins or deal with multiple applications and logins.

The new integration will provide data synchronization to the alerting system for users, contacts and new users, and will provide pass-through login capabilities with ongoing bidirectional contact synchronization.  The applications will also provide a third party data feed module that allows for GHA911 Admin Users to monitor data feed transactions between GHA911 and TFCC, site documentation, Quality Assurance testing and final deployment.

Georgia hospitals began to plan for not only traditional disaster threats, but a real potential of terrorist attacks, including the use of chemical, biological, or nuclear warfare. Since a large scale disaster, whether natural or man-made, would require hospital resources that are far greater than those needed for everyday operations, hospitals recognized that advance planning for mutual aid is imperative.

To that end, Georgia911’s Crisis Care Module developed by SiteVision is among GHA efforts to provide a comprehensive and interactive database of each hospital’s capabilities. Statistics include a general profile, type of facility, emergency contacts, regular bed counts, ICU bed counts and more. SiteVision recently added a Nursing Home Module to include those facilities, as well.

The Georgia Hospital Association is a nonprofit trade association made up of member health systems, hospitals and individuals in administrative and decision-making positions within those institutions.  Its mission is to advance the health of individuals and communities by serving as the leading advocate for all Georgia hospitals and health care systems.
