Organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain supply chain expertise and leadership, particularly as the delivery of healthcare grows increasingly complex and expands beyond the traditional hospital. In the last decade, supply chain has emerged “from the basement” to become a strategic management component within many progressive organizations. As today’s healthcare leaders continue to respond and adapt to a never-ending stream of changes, the supply chain programs within their organizations are increasingly viewed as strategic differentiators.

Preparing for disasters is a much more difficult task than preparing for the day-to-day emergencies that a healthcare facility or system faces. Disaster preparation goes beyond the healthcare facility walls. It involves coordination with community partners and federal and state responders.

This manual provides a framework for preparing for such a coordinated and collaborative response to a disaster.
