Regional Disaster Health Response System

ASPR is developing and building a new Regional Disaster Health Response System (RDHRS) by leveraging and enhancing existing programs – such as the Hospital Preparedness Program and the National Disaster Medical System – to create a more coherent, comprehensive, and capable healthcare disaster response system integrated into daily care delivery.

The proposed RDHRS will be built on a tiered regional framework that emphasizes the collaboration among local healthcare coalitions, trauma centers, public and private healthcare facilities, and emergency medical services to expand access to specialty clinical care expertise and increase medical surge capacity.
