With Covid-19 still impacting businesses globally, Microsoft has taken another step to help hospitals and healthcare providers to better manage communications across their organizations. Today, Microsoft released a new Emergency Response Solution built using their Power Platform that allows any healthcare provider to download and track their scarce resources during an emergency, including an extended free 6-month trial for any healthcare, government, non-profit or education customer responding to Covid-19.
Today we're releasing another Power Platform solution for emergency response.
This one helps hospitals and healthcare providers get quick ground truth on beds in use, supplies on hand, and resources needed.https://t.co/2UtywuEwUZ

The new Emergency Response Solution was driven by Microsoft’s experiences working with Seattle-based healthcare organizations who needed the ability for their front-line works to track and gain visibility over their resources including beds, and supplies including ventilators and masks with nothing more than a mobile phone. With these new solutions, organizations and hospitals have immediate access to a Decision Support Dashboard that displays aggregate information across their entire network and helps decisions on where and how their supplies should be distributed.
Microsoft indicates that this is just version one, and they are already working with hospitals to implement new improvements.
