The HAvBED (Hospital Available Beds for Emergencies and Disasters) system is designed to be a real-time, electronic hospital bed tracking/monitoring system. HAvBED tracks the number of beds available at hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities and interfaces directly with the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) HAvBED data system.

HAvBED serves as a management tool to assist in a system or region’s ability to care for a surge of patients in the event of a mass casualty or large-scale disaster and provides response via emergency department triage capacity reporting. By providing geographical information system (GIS) interactive mapping, emergency responders are able to tell at-a-glance current hospital or shelter bed status and resource availability, such as decontamination facilities, air and land emergency medical service (EMS) providers.
