There's an interesting post on prospectively tracking the utility of social media in emergency situations.
Lockheed Martin, along with the University of Maryland Baltimore County has assembled a team to evaluate Twitter, YouTube and Flickr to learn how beneficial the 3 social media sites are in passing along vital information.
Collaboration! Nice story about federal funding to the state, collaborating with local hospitals to support biosecurity — besides that, it's cool sounding!
The best part of this, from my perspective, is that the new wing will be dual-use. It will support existing emergency department needs, and can be utilized for emergency response. What a novel idea!
