ACS’s Surgical Case Log for Haiti Workers

H/T to Dr. Val, Better Health and her post  The American College Of Surgeons Creates Case Log For Surgeries Performed In Haiti.  I’d like to help her get the word out on this web-based tool the ACS has created to help medical workers in Haiti keep track of surgical procedures.

The ACS has a case log system in place already for College members which they have expanded and opened to non-College members as well.

Non-ACS members can register here.  The system will automatically add Haiti as a location, and surgeons can start adding cases right away.

ACS members who have used the case log system before can log in here.  ACS members who have not registered to use the case log system can register at here.  Once ACS members are logged in, they can add “Haiti” as a location for cases associated with relief activities.

The system currently works with both Palm and Pocket PC phones.  The iPhone and Blackberry editions will be released in the next 1-2 weeks.
