Disaster Preparedness Implications to Supply Chain and the Continuum of Care

By AHRMM

This AHRMM tool covers how health care supply chain professionals should prepare for disasters, with the input from various disciplines. The tool includes supply consumption adjustment calculations and several preparedness plans such as The Joint Commission Emergency Operations Plan ®, the Hospital Incident Commend System (HICS) and the 10 Elements for a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP).

In addition, the tool has information about manufacturer and distribution efforts in the face of a disaster and best practices and lessons learned from the Ebola outbreak and Pulse Nightclub Shooting.
