The primary outcome of Powered for Patients’ DHS Security & Resilience Challenge project is the creation of the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. Dashboard. This powerful new tool will harness advanced fault detection and automated reporting technology connected to emergency power systems to provide government officials and utilities with the first ever near real time reports when emergency power is threatened at critical healthcare facilities during disasters.
Among the exciting benefits of the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. name is its dual meaning. Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. has a literal meaning as a facility using the Power PIONEER dashboard will, by definition, be providing:
Power Information Needed to Expedite Emergency Response
Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. also has the traditional meaning since those hospitals that become the first in the nation to share near real time emergency power status information with government officials and utilities during disasters will in fact be undertaking pioneering work.
An announcement will be made when the Power P.I.O.N.E.E.R. Dashboard website is published.
