ScoringSystem's rapid response system enables health
inspection officials to track emergency situation data in real time
with precise location information provided by using ScoringSystem's
PIDC worldwide premises code, and including up-to-date photos, video,
and inspection records all on the same Site-Specific Recordkeeping Web
page. ScoringSystem's Web-based central server provides a single
"clearinghouse" with record pages for rapidly reporting and
collaborating on critical information by emergency response groups and
others around the world.
Without ScoringSystem's unique central server and Web-based system,
there is often no way to share collective knowledge about an emergency,
whether a disease outbreak or bio-terrorism. Even if officials are
somehow all aware of the situation, and there is no central system, it
can be a matter of days or weeks until all the facts are known to
everyone and their reviews are collected and summarized. By then it is
usually much too late.
With ScoringAg's Location Record Web pages every plant and animal
health inspection official can document the situation with Web-based
records in real time with picture and video. Then, all emergency
response team personnel can review emergency report data, photos, and
video of the situation in real time, directly from the on-site report.
Other off-line databases and local software systems in use today for
collecting and storing information on animal and plant diseases are
scattered around the world and are usually unable to communicate with
each other or exchange information to show the complete situation.
The ScoringSystem emergency response Web pages use a 2D DataMatrix
barcode label that can be printed onsite, so that Nokia, Sendo,
Siemens, Sony Ericsson, and other cell phones using Semacode imaging
software, can decode the barcode and go directly to ScoringSystem's
database and emergency record Web page in real time. With Site-Specific
Recordkeeping the event can be shared anywhere, while the 128-bit
encrypted system maintains security for the Chain of Command under
control of the appointed Gatekeeper.
All members of the emergency response team, as well as specialists
in the animal and plant diseases, and other scientists and officials,
can share data, picture/video about suspicious or death animals or
plants instantaneously with their scientific and official colleagues,
allowing rapid analysis and conclusions to speed the diagnosis and
action taken. Real time actions can stop these traumatic events easier
and get the recovery teams into action quicker and well informed.
Since it is Web-based, ScoringSystem's system can be deployed to
every country in the world, running in Unicode with the ability to
handle all keyboard language set-ups. The system would enable
international groups, such as OIE, APHIS, ORISA, and WHO, to move at a
moment's notice to take action in the field immediately when the
emergency occurs. Local, state, and federal officials and
infrastructures can be connected and stay co-ordinated via the
Many other types of events types can be handled by ScoringSystem's
response system and Web-based record pages, tracking every specific
outbreak of animal or plant diseases at specific sites in one worldwide
database in just seconds. The Internet and the unique Web-based
Location Records are able to report and manage responses on animal and
plant disease outbreaks around the world in just seconds.
Outbreaks, such as foot and mouth disease (FMD), "mad cow disease"
(BSE), avian flu, screw worm fly, and many other animal and plant
diseases, including the effects from all bacterial, fungal, viral,
phytoplasmal, nematode, and parasitic infestations, are too expensive
and burdensome on the world economy when sick animals or plants enter
the global food chain. Recalls of suspected contaminated agricultural
products are expensive not only for companies involved, but also for
the whole international society.
