Syosset, NY (PRWEB) July 16, 2010
New York College of Health Professions, a nonprofit, nationally accredited institution of higher learning, has announced the receipt of the donation of a revolutionary patent pending system for worldwide first responders based on location.
Lisa Pamintuan, president of the College, announced the donation and relayed that "the inventor/donor is also the inventor of the Innovation Fund III Early Location Based Advertising Patents, which are widely regarded as a major breakthrough in commercial location based advertising. Innovation Fund III was formerly part of the Innovation Fund family of companies (http://www.Innfund.com)." This donated patent involves Emergency Based Responders and locating them on a priority system in direct proportion to the significance of the emergency, no matter where they are in the world. These emergency responders can be used for natural disasters, health care, fire or police situations, or virtually any emergency, and through this system the appropriate responder can be matched and deployed instantly to the crisis location through the growing number of smartphones and microprocessors worldwide. "We think this Intellectual Property will broaden the College's growing portfolio, which is now one of the largest assets of our institution of higher learning," president Pamintuan added.
Normally, people in need of help call numbers that are routed to nearby switchboards, which then dispense appropriate responders from a local or regional pool. Under this new system, responders in a worldwide database would be matched to the response needed, and the request for assistance would be triaged directly to the actual responders who meet the criteria, as well as are in the nearby area and can be accessed utilizing GPS and other locators. In order for this system to become adopted nationally and internationally, "some of the laws governing licensing and jurisdiction will have to be amended to accommodate the greater good" says Pamintuan.
"International disasters and worldwide relief efforts have shown the power of using global non- political responders. However, while doctors, nurses and health care workers often volunteer in worldwide emergencies, there are still state laws that should be amended to meet the realities of the capability of newer technologies. They should allow all qualified personnel, regardless of state licenses, to respond."
New York College and its principals have worked closely in the past with the former New York State Homeland Security "Czar", the Honorable Michael Balboni.
"We are excited about this newest addition to the Intellectual Property Portfolio of the College which we believe will become increasingly important to our institution over the next decade," said Pamintuan.
