Public health guidelines regarding a health disaster are not typically available in the technology used by health and public health applications. Staff is required to transfer guidelines manually into their workstreams.
Goals and Objectives
Embedding guidelines in workflow applications improves the efficiency and consistency of applying guidelines. The guidelines can be accessed through multiple devices increasing access by individuals as well as public health and clinical care workers.

Use Case Summary
During public health disasters, federal and state agencies issue guidelines for a variety of aspects of the disaster, such as symptom checking criteria, assessment of risk, instructions on care and monitoring. Embedding those guidelines into workflow allows the information to become part of the processes and does not replace existing plans.
