Overview

Emergencies and disasters can happen at any time, putting the function of communities and the health of the people at serious risk. Countries with well-developed health systems and a well-trained, well-equipped workforce are better prepared to deal with disasters and save lives, especially in the first hours of the disaster and before additional emergency help arrives. This also helps build resilience into our health care and emergency management systems.

In the US, there is a growing awareness of the need to build these capabilities and resilience into our health care organizations, their workforce, and other response agencies. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS] and other organizations have included various rules and policies as part of their oversight of health care organizations, but there is significant variability in capability, preparedness and resilience in a majority of these organizations.

Drivers of this need also include the fact that the frequency of disasters continues to increase, such as natural disasters, like floods, fires, hurricanes, and manmade events like mass shootings, public events like sporting events, concerts, inaugurations, as well as weapons of mass destruction. Expenses continue to climb; for example, 2017-2018 was the most expensive year for the federal government and it’s spending on disasters, with the largest number of health care facilities impacted. With the merging of hospitals and health systems, more organizations have been and will be touched by these disasters, and need to work out plans and networks to respond at all levels, from local to federal.

Health care organizations need to deliver response and recovery in a consistent, reliable way. Consistent tools and activities are needed to create work standards so they can communicate and work cohesively with affiliates in their networks at all levels to effectively treat patients and minimize risk. This program will synthesize established disaster frameworks with health systems operations specific to disaster events with guiding principles and practical approaches to improve patient care through readiness, response and recovery.


Objectives

  • Describe the Guiding Principles of effective disaster management in healthcare organizations and potential risks if they are not followed.

  • Discuss the organizations and current policy regulations that may have an impact on effective disaster planning for health care organizations (clinical, operational, administrative, risk mitigation).

  • Identify three reasons why disaster planning is critical to achieving better patient outcomes.

  • Explore the elements of an effective disaster planning needs assessment for disaster readiness in a healthcare organization.

  • Articulate why and how information sharing in your network is critical for effective disaster response.

  • Review effective disaster planning, response and recovery strategies within an organization and its support network.

  • Describe the elements of effective disaster recovery within an organization and it’s support network.

  • List three barriers to effective disaster management and potential solutions.


Audience

Clinical staff, management and operations staff, and emergency services providers from around the United States.
