The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), part of the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services, has in its mission the development of communication systems technology to improve the delivery of health information. The ReUnite app is designed to speed
uploading necessary personal information about missing (and found) people to NLM's PEOPLE LOCATOR®
(PL) service available at https://pl.nlm.nih.gov
. PL was developed
to assist in post-disaster family reunification as well as to study the utility of such tools in responding to disasters.
