AbstractThe objective of this project is to provide a technical mechanism for information to be easily and securely shared between public health ESSENCE users and non-public health partners; specifically, emergency management, law enforcement, and the first responder community. Officials from across the National Capital Region (NCR) in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia worked with the ESSENCE team to determine the best way for information to be securely posted, tagged, and searched in an easily navigable site.
