It is crucial for public health organizations to stay on top of any potential toxic substance exposures and be made aware of overdoses. Having a system for citizens to report these issues makes it easier for health officials to quickly get things under control and avoid any further repercussions. It is also valuable to have an alert system so citizens can stay informed on any updates regarding the toxic substances. So how can health facilities implement a strategy to achieve these goals, without creating additional manual work?
SimplyCast presents the idea of a Toxic Substance Reporting system, which is run completely by automation. This means no additional human intervention is required, and the emergency can be reported and resolved as quickly as possible. By making use of digital tools such as 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. This solution helps to streamline how health facilities manage toxic substance reporting and knowledge sharing. The main users are expected to be public health administrators, and the citizens in surrounding areas.
The Digital Solution-Who Handles What?
Since collecting reports when toxic substances or overdoses are identified is so important, SimplyCast anticipated the need for a more efficient system. By switching to an automated alternative, organizations can easily collect reports from citizens. There is also an option for any interested citizen to sign up for SMS alerts to learn more about specific substances. This solution is a personalized communication system that makes use of engagement automation to help health facilities manage their responses to toxic substances. We have broken down the five steps that make up this solution, and who participates in each.
Step 1- Administrators
The first step is for the public health administration to confirm that the toxic substance reporting system is configured appropriately for the organization’s specific needs.
Step 2- Citizens
Any interested citizen can sign up to receive alerts from public health by texting in to an SMS short code or long code.
Step 3- Administrators
The previous step allows administrators to send out alerts with relevant information to whoever is interested, via an SMS message.
Step 4- Citizens
Citizens are also able to text in and receive a link to submit a reporting form. This will then be sent to a reviewer who can decide what action needs to be taken.
Step 5- Citizens
Finally, any interested citizens can also in to a short or long code and follow a response tree to learn more about certain toxic substances.
