Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Determined by Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC).
The measure is designed to determine if hospitals have EDs that are recognized through a statewide, territorial, or regional standardized system that are able to stabilize and/or manage pediatric medical emergencies. HPP will review overall trends in HCCs with hospitals capable of stabilizing and managing a pediatric patient. The inclusion of this measure links the HPP and EMSC programs, highlighting pediatric readiness as key to ensuring that states are considering the special needs of children during emergencies.
As the data on this joint measure is collected by EMSC as part of their grant requirements, no data will be collected by HPP.
16. No data collection required. EMSC will provide the data on the hospitals with EDs that are able to stabilize and/or manage pediatric medical emergencies. HPP recipients, HCCs, and hospitals do not need to provide data to HPP for this component of the measure.
