The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published emergency preparedness requirements for healthcare organizations in 2017. Checkout ideas, tools, and templates for creating a Communications Plan that will enhance your organization’s emergency communications and meet CMS-mandated regulations.

Ideas, tools, and templates for taking your After Action Review process from a compliance process to a driving force for improving your systems and processes and enhancing your organization’s resiliency during a disaster. 

PACE is an acronym for Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency, and provides a framework to document communication planning for your organization and individual departments and groups.  A department with a PACE Plan in place will know how they plan to communicate under not only normal operations but during times of disaster and systems failure.

FEMA PrepTalks

PrepTalks are given by subject-matter experts and thought leaders to spread new ideas, spark conversation, and promote innovative leadership for the issues confronting emergency managers.  Each PrepTalk release includes a video of the presentation and the question-and-answer (Q&A) session, a discussion guide to support local action, and additional resources. PrepTalks Discussion Guides are companion documents to the PrepTalk videos. When used together, these guides help translate the research and expertise showcased in each presentation into action steps to improve disaster preparedness. PrepTalk videos from the symposium will be rolled out every three weeks.
