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 programmatic targets and goals for subsequent years. As the CST exercise (Phase 1) concludes at 90 minutes, each HCC’s goal is to complete the exercise within 90 minutes.
The CST assesses the preparedness and response performance of HCCs and member organizations across a number of critical functions. While an HCC may have completed foundational aspects of community preparedness (i.e., response plans), exercises test an HCC’s ability to perform critical functions in an emergency scenario. One of these functions is to identify the total number of patients in an evacuating facility so that receiving facilities may prepare to receive them. This measure determines how quickly evacuating facilities are able to assess and communicate essential patient counts across the HCC.
Each HCC should report the following data in the CAT. During the specified time period for end-of-year reporting, recipients should enter this information on behalf of each HCC into the end-of-year performance measure module in PERFORMS. SPPR will calculate percentages.
