This article mainly assesses the capacity and disease burden in a virtual network of New York City primary care providers following Hurricane Sandy. It introduces the basic information about the Electronic Health Record (HER) and The Primary Care Information Project, showing that PCIP generates several sets of data which helps access the impact of the storm. It also gives an insight onto the strengths of the HER in post-disaster scenarios. For example, it decreases the risks of privacy leaking and threatening institutional trust. Furthermore, it gives an explanation for its weakness including its potential of influencing by both selection and surveillance bias and the measurement error generated by the variation in documentation patterns. This article suggests that the HER data network may become a valuable part of the infrastructure benefiting the disaster relief. This article is impressive because it provides a solution model which can be used to aid and recovery after the disaster and the statistic within it clearly shows its effectiveness, persuading the audience (such as the Congress) to bring it into operation. The expertise of Sebek, K, a city research scientist, adds…
