Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Applying MAC System concepts, the Healthcare Coalition response organization has two major components:
The actual titles “Healthcare Coalition Response Team” and “Senior Policy Group” may vary from one Coalition to the next, but they should accurately reflect the respective roles of these components. Healthcare Coalitions may want to avoid using “EOC” in the title of their response organization in order to distinguish this EOC-like function from local jurisdiction (Tier 3) and State (Tier 4) response elements. The term EOC, as defined by NIMS, also describes a physical location rather than simply a functional entity. Typically, the HCRT may have a very small primary physical location. Most of its work may be conducted by team members who remain at their “home” facility and communicate virtually.
