     33The device will have the capability to include data such as picture for proper identification, personal information & classification, contact information, registration type, health status before and after the disaster, and vital values. It should be able to update itself and also have necessary statistics capabilities. So let's say a disaster strikes one of the islands of Indonesia. People are waiting in line for registration. Of course the registration priority should be given to those with worse conditions first. So there could be two kiosks. One for severe cases, and one for others. Each equipped with devices that have this module loaded on it. The devices could be connected to the internet, but they also could store the information internally in case there wasn't any internet connection. So that it could be uploaded to the database later. Also the devices will be secure and encrypt the data so if stolen no information could be taken from them. It will self destruct by removing all the information if someone tried to break the encryption, possibly after uploading the data first. Also the volunteers who are at the disaster sites and taking the wounded and dead off the disaster site must be equipped with this device because obviously those can't form any lines. Anyway, after they are registered, meaning that all the information is taken into the device, they will be given triage values based on their health status. First of all can they be treated at the shelter or not. Is it just something like a headache?  Or is it something serious like a heart attack. Since they are never as many doctors as needed at the disaster site, this device also includes some pre loaded treatments for known symptoms. So that volunteers could enter the symptoms and get the response from the device for the best way to treat a patient. This is important especially for non serious cases that a doctor visit is not really necessary. This way the doctor could see those that really need a doctor. Though even for serious cases, it is useful since it could facilitate the doctor's treatment. In third world countries, their resources is very limited. So you don't want to over crowd the hospital. It could be the only hospital near the disaster site with limited supplies and if everyone was to go there it could make the hospital unable to treat patient as quickly and efficiently as possible, and perhaps, they might not even be able to accept any more patients at all. So, it is vital to make sure as many people are treated at the shelter as possible. And only those truly in need will get to the hospital. The information collected from at the shelter must be also accessible to the hospital so that there won't be any time wasted for duplicates. Also the device must be able to collect and process whatever information required for future statistics.
