Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
ASPR is supporting the development of demonstration projects that address healthcare preparedness challenges, establish best practices for improving disaster readiness across the healthcare delivery system, and show the potential effectiveness and viability of a Regional Disaster Health Response System (RDHRS).
On September 27, 2018, the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response awarded two $3 million grants to demonstrate how a new Regional Disaster Health Response System support the provision of immediate medical specialty care, including trauma, burn or other specialty care, during a national emergency. Nebraska Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, received the grants from ASPR’s Hospital Preparedness Program to conduct pilot projects that show the potential effectiveness and viability of a Regional Disaster Health Response System.
