Technology Aids Swift Emergency Department Response to Mass Shooting in Aurora, CO

In July 2012, at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, tens of people were shot and wounded by a gunman. 22 shooting victims were rushed to the University of Colorado Hospital. Their highly coordinated treatment of the victims, made possible in part through their innovative use of real-time patient flow technology, meant all 22 that came to the hospital survived.
