ISC CREATES WEB-BASED COMPLIANCE TOOL
TO TRACK HOSPITAL AND HEALTHCARE PREPAREDNESS
HOSPITALS AND HEALTHCARE FACILITIES STATEWIDE
The CDC Public Health and Healthcare Preparedness Capabilities provides guidance based on Developing and Maintaining Emergency Operations Plans Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 101 (FEMA). These core capabilities assist State and Local Health Departments (LHD) and hospitals in using these capabilities for risk assessment, planning, and training elements.
ISC developed and produced an educational All-Hazards Preparedness Video in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole. In coordination with the Office of Emergency Management, ISC reviewed existing material and prepared a 17-minute script to educate the public on natural and man-made disasters, planning, evacuation, sheltering and emergency supply kits. A 30 second public service announcement was also produced and shared on local and regional television networks, county websites, and other common video media outlets.
The CDC Public Health and Healthcare Preparedness Compliance Tool was built into the Odysseus™ Enterprise System (OES), offering the capability to track and cross reference existing plans and other preparedness efforts.
