Publication Date Mar 2011

Abstract Catastrophic Health Event (CHE) readiness is the ability to increase the preparedness, response capabilities, and capacities of hospitals and other healthcare facilities, trauma care centers, and emergency medical service systems. Our ability to respond to a CHE varies throughout the United States. The Hospital Preparedness Program's (HPP) primary mission is to assist hospitals, public health departments, emergency management and response agencies, and healthcare partnerships at the community and substate levels. These Health Care Coalitions engage communities to plan, develop, and exercise local capabilities. How have successful coalitions overcome the challenges inherent in developing a plan that creates working partnerships and strengthens response efforts while coordinating efforts with the State. What effects does funding have on partnerships. What should be the goal of these partnerships. This paper explores some of the concepts of partnering and sustainability, shows what constitutes a successful partnership, and names potential initiatives that could spring from these partnerships.
