Management of safe and successful large-scale events requires detailed careful planning and complex system-wide decision making. However, research into medical emergency knowledge management for just-in-time decision support in mass gatherings lags behind the needs of the community. Unforeseen circumstances, dynamic changes in the environment, various unexpected impact factors require immediate, real-time response that can be achieved mainly through context-aware, intelligent and cost-efficient… 
Promotion of prehospital emergency care through clinical decision support systems: opportunities and challenges
The use of clinical decision support systems in prehospital care resulted in accurate diagnoses, improved patient triage and patient outcomes, and reduction of prehospital time by improving emergency management and rescue operations.
Applications of Mobile Agents in Healthcare Domain: A Literature Survey
This paper reviews the applicability and usefulness of mobile agents in a wide variety of healthcare applications such as medical data management, medical information retrieval, health data integration, decision-making support, telemedicine, securing medical information and coordination of distinct medical activities.
Designing a health data management system based hadoop-agent
This paper aims to present a new architecture model for health data that supports the storage and the management of unstructured medical data in a distributed environment based on multi-agent paradigm and the integration of the mobile agent model into hadoop ecosystem will give the opportunity to enable instant communication process between multiple health repositories.
Secure mobile agents for patient status telemonitoring using blockchain
An approach that aims to secure the Mobile Agent during communication with the Stationary Agent by eliminating a malicious Mobile Agent using Blockchain is proposed and integrated into a healthcare application based Mobile Agent that monitors the patient's status to improve the security of the Mobile agent in healthcare application.


A Dynamic, Data-Driven, Decision Support System for Emergency Medical Services
The value of a DDDAS in support of emergency medical treatment decisions in response to a crisis is explored and an ever-changing stream of real-time data that enables coordinated decision-making by heterogeneous personnel across a wide geography at the same time is explored.

A decision support system integrated in a GIS with the aim of managing optimal navigation of emergency medical vehicles in urban areas and individuation of the shortest route for ambulance facilities, to provide a decision support tool that can maximize emergency service vehicle response.
Improving disaster response efforts with decision support systems
As evidenced by Hurricane Katrina in August, 2005, disaster response efforts are hindered by a lack of coordination, poor information flows, and the inability of disaster response managers to
Towards situation-awareness and ubiquitous data mining for road safety: rationale and architecture for a compelling application
An Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) that analyses situational driver behaviour and proposes real-time countermeasures to minimise fatalities/ casualties is presented, based on Ubiquitous Data Mining (UDM) concepts.
Application of Domain Ontology for Decision Support in Medical Emergency Coordination
This paper illustrates how domain ontology can facilitate more effective decision making processes in EM in the context of medical emergency coordination and proposes a shared structure of EM concepts and their relationships.
Context-aware mobile agents for decision-making support in healthcare emergency applications
This paper applies agents to the highly dynamic and variable context of healthcare emergency decision-support domain and advocates the use of mobile agents to support the deploymen.
