Intermedix is a company that provides a unique set of technologies that supports providers across the spectrum of public safety and security services.
“In emergency management,” for example, explained Intermedix CEO Joel Portice, “our WebEOC solution supports situational awareness and incident management for more than 25 countries, 52 federal agencies, 40 states and 80 corporations. This broad footprint enables information sharing during events and ensures a robust common operating picture. Most recently, our staff dedicated to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rapidly deployed a unique toolset to support situational awareness for service providers in Ebola stricken countries.”
“We also deliver a number of solutions that provide situational awareness to public health agencies and health care facilities,” Portice said, noting that, “These solutions include patient tracking, hospital resource availability, mass alerting and volunteer deployment. These are designed to be used for daily operations, so that communities are prepared when disaster strikes. A great example is related to the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing. On that day, the public safety and health care system in and around Boston utilized our tracking system to track patients impacted by the events and our hospital incident management solution was used to provide real-time situational awareness to hospital staff.”
