PCN App in Story on High EMS Utilizers

The Person-Centered Network (PCN App) developed by Associate Professor Danielle Varda and the Center on Network Science is discussed in the EMS1.com article “Why social networks are crucial for the care of high EMS utilizers.” The article describes how high EMS utilizers often have a limited social network that increases their vulnerability to personal health problems, natural disasters and other day-to-day turmoil. “The Person-Centered Network app is used to screen a patient and connect the patient with available community resources. The app can map the current social network and recommend an ideal network with other actors — individuals and organizations — to assist the patient.”
