TOGETHER for PPE Readiness

 The Center for Medical Interoperability (C4MI) has entered into an agreement with the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) out of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). This work is additionally supported by NIOSH's parent agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop a trusted monitoring and surveillance system for personal protective equipment (PPE). The project is a public-private partnership called TOGETHER (Trust infOrmation exchanGe to achiEve healTH rEsource Readiness) to allow for trusted data exchange developed for and by the healthcare industry.  The initial application of this platform, TOGETHER for PPE Readiness, provides real-time information on PPE inventory (respirators, masks, gloves, gowns, and other protective equipment) among hospitals, health departments, emergency responders, stockpiles, and other PPE supply chain stakeholders.
