Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
SPPR will establish a baseline based on performance data collected in initial fiscal years, which will be used to set targets and goals for subsequent years.
In the HST, HCCs and their member organizations are expected to simulate a surge of patients into the emergency department and identify appropriate destinations based on patient care needs. This PM demonstrates the ability of HCCs to increase bed availability in the intensive care unit (ICU) to meet initial patient care needs.
During the specified time period for end-of-year reporting, recipients should enter this information into the end-of-year performance measure module in PERFORMS. SPPR will calculate percentages.
