Mercy-St. Louis Emergency Management Technology

Mercy Hospital-St. Louis is one of the few hospitals in the country providing police, fire and emergency personnel with an instantaneous electronic 2D map of its facilities. Mercy-St. Louis can send live video feeds to crews en route to an emergency. Mercy is applying computer-aided design, also known as CAD, in an innovative way in order to provide critical details in the event of a hostage situation, a fire emergency, or structure collapse due to a natural disaster. Mercy is expending this technology to all Mercy hospitals and facilities. Already, 302 Mercy facilities are electronically mapped.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
