The AAP and American College of Emergency Physicians' EIF provides a link to the child's Medical Home and pediatric subspecialists with advice for first steps to emergency treatment. It includes expanded discussion of disaster planning, electronic applications of the EIF, and a link to the University of Minnesota/Michigan Public Health Institute EIF project Midwest Emergency Medical Services for Children Information System that can be toured at www.memscis.com.
