The bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013 resulted in a rapid influx of hundreds of victims to area trauma centers.   BIDMC's efficient response was aided by use of the ED Dashboard, a home-grown ED information system which was fully utilized during the critical phases of the incident and the aftermath. Dr. Nathanson is the Director of Emergency Medicine Informatics at BIDMC and the architect of this system and will discuss the origins of the system, how it was used during this event as well as what went well and what lessons were learned.
