Public health organizations aim to stay on top of any toxic substance reports or overdoses, and ensure the situation gets handled as quickly as possible. Keeping everyone safe and informed is always a priority, and having a smooth-running process to manage these reports is crucial. Manually sorting and responding to these reports can get challenging, as there is a lot of information to take into account. These facilities are also looking for a way to keep citizens informed and up to date on substance information. This is why SimplyCast created the Toxic Substance Reporting system, which is completely automated, allowing these reports to be handled efficiently and effectively.
The digital solution makes use of several different tools, that when combined allow toxic substances to be reported to health officials, and for citizens to stay up to date on any relevant information. Making toxic substance information easily available to the public, and receiving these reports in an organized fashion are important factors that are included in this system. The automated solution makes use of easily accessible methods for the public to report toxic substances, the ability to send alerts to citizens, and SMS message trees that allow specific information to be shared. There are several benefits to opting for the digital alternative, but we have broken down our top 3 for you in this blog post.
The Benefits of the Digital Solution
SimplyCast knew a better alternative to toxic substance and overdose reporting would be beneficial to public health organizations, and surrounding communities. This is why we created the completely automated solution, so these emergency situations can be handled with ease, and no additional manual work is added to anyone’s plate. Managing alerts to keep citizens informed is made much simpler with the digital technology incorporated in this solution. Information is key, and ensuring everyone receives the right resources can help citizens better respond to these situations. There are several perks to using an automated system to manage these reports, but we have chosen the 3 main benefits to share with you.
Substance Reporting is Simplified
As soon as a citizen thinks they have identified a toxic substance or an overdose, there will be text-in or online methods that allow them to immediately submit a report. Public health can then have these submissions automatically assigned to a reviewer, so the correct action can be taken quickly.
Communicate Exposures to the Public
Any citizens in the area can sign up to receive alerts if a toxic substance has been identified in their community. This is done through texting a number, which will automatically add them to a list for alerts. These messages may include information on how to avoid the toxic substance, or the dangers and symptoms related to a potential exposure.
Keep Citizens Informed
Since public health organizations often have tons of resources and information about toxic substances and protocols when dealing with exposures, the system allows this information to be shared with interested citizens. They simply have to follow a text-in response tree, which will provide them with the information they need. There is also an option to fill out an online form, and be emailed the information about a certain toxic substance.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution to manage toxic substance reporting, and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help health organizations operate smoothly.
