We began with the challenge of Best Hack for Aiding Natural Disaster Recovery Efforts by Booz Allen Hamilton. We decided that one of the most important aspects of recovery efforts is being able to provide proper care for the wounded and dying. Often a lack of resources prevents hospitals from properly performing their job. To help fix this issue we wanted to create a database only accessible by hospitals. They would use this database to update their own inventory and view the inventory of nearby hospitals. This would allow them to find the resources that they need and request them from one of the hospitals in the database rather than placing an order with their provider and waiting for a shipment. The goal is that this database could help save lives of those affected specifically by natural disasters.
What it does
The database allows hospitals to update their inventory and look at/ search other hospitals inventories. This helps them find supplies in emergency situations.
