Disaster Metrics in Acute Medical Disasters
Disaster Metrics and Acute Medical Disasters
Jamil Bayram, M.D.
There is a need for a comprehensive quantitative model in MCE
that would account for both pre-hospital and hospital-based acute
medical systems, leading to the quantification of acute medical
disasters. Such a proposed model needs to be flexible enough in its
application to accommodate a priori estimation as part of the
decision-making process and a posteriori evaluation for total
quality management purposes.
