Seattle Children’s Hospital Becomes First Private U.S. Healthcare Facility to Implement OasisPlus; System Provides Info, Communication, Reporting for “What’s Next” After Earthquake Early Warning
PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kinemetrics, Inc., the leader in developing and delivering solutions for monitoring earthquakes and their effects on people, business and structures, announced that the Seattle Children’s Hospital has become the first private healthcare organization to implement Kinemetrics’ OasisPlus to provide real-time tools and information needed before, during and after an earthquake. Combined with advanced seismic evaluations from partners Reid Middleton, OasisPlus integrates real-time data processing with emergency response plans.
OasisPlus is a technology platform that allows mission-critical facilities to prepare response teams and occupants more effectively before an earthquake, as well as to avoid unnecessary evacuations and business process interruptions to immediately secure ongoing critical operations following a seismic event. Better-informed decision-making -- driven by real-time data reported during an earthquake and after the shaking stops -- can deliver continuity of operations and ensure a coordinated and effective response.
OasisPlus has been designed with this in mind, providing unmatched situational awareness to decision-makers on site as well as structural engineers and leadership off-site. Combined with consumer-focused earthquake early warning, OasisPlus delivers an effective combination to mitigate the impact of an earthquake.
“Not all earthquakes require extreme response or full evacuation, and many times the ability to keep patients under care in place -- especially those in ICU settings -- can lead to better overall outcomes,” said Ogie Kuraica, president and CEO of Kinemetrics. “OasisPlus delivers an advanced, proven solution to hospitals and healthcare facilities that can enable smart, real-time decisions that take emergency preparedness and disaster recovery to the next level, providing building occupants and response teams with the information that they need immediately after the shaking stops.”
Seattle Children’s Hospital is known as an innovative leader in pediatric health and wellness, with individual cancer care, intensive care, cardiac ICU, medical/surgical unit, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), psychiatry and behavioral medicine unit and rehabilitation facilities on their main campus and will play a critical role in regional post-earthquake recovery. The OasisPlus deployment is another way that Seattle Children's Hospital is ensuring that they can deliver their mission of providing hope, care, and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.
The introduction of the OasisPlus solution into hospitals on the west coast is a logical expansion to areas that are (or will be) served by the USGS ShakeAlert earthquake early warning system. What do you do during and after an earthquake? OasisPlus addresses the need for those answers within occupied structures. OasisPlus is designed to support mission-critical organizations including utilities, transportation systems and educational facilities globally, and notable OasisPlus deployments include Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and the Dubai World Trade Center.
Kinemetrics’ OasisPlus solution is comprised of four major components:
Advanced sensing technology deployed in the structure that acquires essential data during shaking.
Performance-based engineering analyses that are guided by international standards including ASCE 41 to provide meaningful performance-thresholds to base alert levels. This allows for conversion of measurement data into actionable information such as the probability of certain levels of damage at specific locations, and provides the basis for post-earthquake response actions such as where to inspect as well as what to look for.
The command console that serves as the two-way information hub of OasisPlus and provides a high level of situational awareness for decision-making and response coordination. The command console includes real-time information from sensors, alert levels for impact expected in differing parts of the building, occupant check ins, injury and hazard reports, safety checks and building safety tagging. A detailed SAFE Report is automatically sent out to designated lists of recipients (leadership, response team, structural engineering firm, etc.) and instructions can be sent to mobile app users to better coordinate response. The command console also provides reports detailing actions taken during the event for after-action review and insurance needs.
iOS and Android mobile apps deliver the functionality needed by occupants and response teams including information on recent earthquakes, response information and building exit routes. Occupants can provide real-time, on-the-ground information and check-in, report injuries or hazards, and receive instructions via the app, simplifying communication for elevated safety. Response teams can view and perform safety checks via the app that show up immediately on the command console to improve response coordination and timing.
For pre- and post-earthquake use, OasisPlus enables administrators to schedule drills to train and test their emergency procedures, and the system provides after-action reporting (AAR) for the practice. After an earthquake, OasisPlus provides detailed reporting of what happened to assess the effectiveness of emergency procedures and data needed to help speed recovery for the organization and local municipalities, including itemization of the results of safety checks, HICS response reporting and ATC-20 building inspection and tagging.

西雅图儿童医院成为美国首家实施 Oasis Plus 的私人医疗机构；该系统提供地震预警后的信息、沟通和报告
加州帕萨迪纳。---(商业前景)-- Kinemetrics , Inc .是开发和提供监测地震及其对人员、商业和结构影响的解决方案的领导者，西雅图儿童医院已经成为第一个实施 Kinemetrics'Oasis Plus 的私人医疗机构，提供地震发生前、地震期间和地震后所需的实时工具和信息。与 Reid Middleton 合作伙伴的先进地震评估相结合， Oasis Plus 将实时数据处理与应急计划相结合。
OasisPlus 的设计考虑到了这一点，为现场的决策者以及结构工程师和现场以外的领导提供了无与伦比的情境意识。结合以消费者为中心的地震预警， Oasis Plus 提供了一个有效的组合，以减轻地震的影响。
Kinemetrics 总裁兼首席执行官奥吉•库拉伊卡( Ogie Kuraica )表示：“并非所有地震都需要极端反应或完全疏散，而且很多时候，让患者得到适当护理的能力——尤其是在 ICU 环境下的能力——可能会带来更好的整体结果。”“ Oasis Plus 为医院和医疗设施提供了一种先进的、经过验证的解决方案，能够实现智能、实时的决策，将应急准备和灾后恢复提升到新的水平，为建筑居住者和应急小组提供在震后立即需要的信息。”
西雅图儿童医院被称为儿科健康领域的创新领导者，拥有个人癌症护理、重症监护、心脏 ICU 、医疗/外科单位、新生儿重症监护病房（ NICU ）。在主校区，精神科和行为医学科以及康复设施将在地区震后恢复中发挥重要作用。OasisPlus 的部署是西雅图儿童医院的另一种方式，它确保他们能够完成他们的使命，提供希望、照顾和治疗，帮助每个儿童过上最健康、最充实的生活。
在西海岸的医院中引入 OasisPlus 解决方案是对美国地质调查局地震预警系统服务（或将服务）的地区的逻辑扩展。地震期间和之后你做什么？OasisPlus 解决了在被占用结构中对这些答案的需求。Oasis Plus 旨在支持全球范围内的关键任务组织，包括公用事业、运输系统和教育设施，值得注意的是， Oasis Plus 的部署包括世界最高建筑 Burj Khalifa 和迪拜世界贸易中心。
Kinemetrics 的 OasisPlus 解决方案由四个主要部分组成：
该命令控制台是 OasisPlus 的双向信息中心，为决策和响应协调提供了高度的情景感知。指挥控制台包括来自传感器的实时信息、对建筑物不同部位预期影响的警报级别、居住者检查、伤害和危险报告、安全检查和建筑物安全标记。详细的 SAFE 报告会自动发送给指定的收件人列表（领导、响应团队、结构工程公司等），并且可以向移动应用程序用户发送指令以更好地协调响应。命令控制台还提供详细报告，详细说明在事件期间为事后审核和保险需求采取的行动。
iOS 和 Android 移动应用程序提供了居住者和响应团队所需的功能，包括关于最近地震、响应信息和建筑出口路线的信息。占领者可以提供实时的现场信息和入住检查，报告受伤或危险，并通过应用程序接收指令，简化了沟通，以提高安全性。响应团队可以通过立即出现在命令控制台上的应用程序查看和执行安全检查，以改善响应协调和时间安排。
对于地震前和地震后的使用， OasisPlus 使管理员能够安排演练，以培训和测试他们的应急程序，该系统为实践提供事后报告（ AAR ）。地震发生后， Oasis Plus 提供了详细的报告，说明了为评估紧急程序的有效性所发生的情况，以及帮助组织和地方市政当局加快恢复所需的数据，包括安全检查结果的分项列出、 HICS 响应报告和 ATC-20建筑检查和标记。
