The recipient of the eICU Clinical Impact Award, Inova Health System, demonstrated an effective care delivery model for enhancing public safety during mass casualty events through their presentation, "Emergency Response and Mobile Telemedicine: A Collaboration in Disaster Preparedness."  Success was evident in their expanded use of the eICU Program for triage and consultation which extended beyond an initial three hospital pilot to a nine hospital deployment as part of a Department of Defense surge capacity exercise.
