REMM: Radiation Event Medical Management
Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt has announced the launching of REMM (Radiation Event Medical Management). This downloadable online diagnostic and treatment system is designed to provide medical information that can be used quickly and efficiently to orient and guide health care providers without formal expertise in radiation safety or radiation medicine during a mass casualty Radiation Event. Critical information on the Web site is also downloadable for use when Internet connectivity may not be available.
REMM was developed in partnership with the HHS's Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response with medical experts from the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NLM's Division of Specialized Information Services implemented the Web design, system architecture and infrastructure for REMM.
