improve daily patient care and allow for an effective response

to a mass casualty, bio-terror, or emerging disease event.

and shoot new technologies b-roll inside the Emergency

Department

Washington, D.C.

All press must be cleared in for parking and escorted by a

member of the Hospital Center's Media Relations team. Please

at Washington Hospital Center and Director of Project ER One &

the ER One Institute

Representatives from partner companies Agion, Cisco, DuPont,

Herman Miller, Microsoft, Parco, and Steris to explain the new

technologies

WHY: This marks the first time some of the technologies developed

that can be used on a daily basis yet is optimized to provide

emergency care during a mass casualty situation.
