Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Operational Intent: These questions will be asked of each funded recipient (62 states and jurisdictions) and funded sub-recipient3 to determine for which performance measures they should respond. Recipients and sub-recipients will only be asked to provide
data for those performance measures that correspond to the outcomes and activities for which they used Hospital Preparedness Program Cooperative Agreement COVID-19 Supplemental Funding.
PM 1: Please select the sub-recipient type that most closely represents your facility or organization:
Program Performance Measure
Amount Hospital Preparedness Program Cooperative Agreement COVID-19 Supplemental Funding (in whole dollars) provided per sub-award
Total amount of funding provided to each recipient will be prepopulated
PM 4: Select the target outcomes (one or more) that your facility or organization directly used Hospital Preparedness Program Cooperative Agreement COVID-19 Supplement Funding to achieve. For each targeted outcome for which your facility or organization used supplemental funding, indicate the estimated number of funding dollars used for the associated outcome. Please leave all other sections blank.
Update the recipient’s special pathogens concept of operations (CONOPS) for health care system response to COVID-19 to include approaches for the assessment, transport, and treatment of persons suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19. Updates to the CONOPS may include:
Improve and maintain health care worker readiness for COVID-19 and other special pathogens:
Examine and enhance physical infrastructure to ensure infection control7 for COVID-19 preparedness and response, as necessary:
Collaborate with multiple and diverse provider types to ensure capabilities to care for target populations:
3 Sub-recipients are: Health care coalitions, Emergency medical services (EMS)/pre-hospital care (includes 911 and public safety answering points), State/jurisdiction Special Pathogen Treatment Centers, and other health care facilities/organizations defined in footnote one.
4 The terms and conditions for this cooperative agreement were intentionally worded broadly to provide flexibility to recipients. “Other health care facilities/organizations” may include, but not are not limited to: support services (pharmacy, blood bank, medical supply chain), home and residential care (includes long-term care, home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, etc.), acute care hospitals, and hospital systems. Recipients are permitted and encouraged to provide sub-awards to facilities outside their membership.
5 The first tranche of funding was released to recipients on March 30, 2020 with a required distribution timeline of 30 days for subawards to SPTCs. The second tranche of funding was released to recipients on May 25, 2020, with a required distribution timeline of 30 days for subawards to SPTCs. No requirement was instituted for the timeline for execution of sub-awards with other facilities and organizations.
6 In this context, the National Healthcare Preparedness Programs (NHPP) Branch defines a full-time physician as a physician that is dedicated and assigned to support the jurisdictional emergency operations center (EOC) with patient load-balancing coordination. This EOC physician should have insight into available resources at hospitals and other health care facilities.
