Real-time emergency management requires real-time mobile communication and collaboration solutions. Make it easier to prepare for and respond to disruptions, emergencies and disasters with a proven system for all phases of emergency management, purpose-built for healthcare. See how LiveProcess can help you improve healthcare emergency management at every level of your organization, including health systems, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and public agencies and regional coalitions.
Learn about how regional coalitions help healthcare facilities comply with CMS emergency preparedness regulations and improve situational awareness. Disasters that cross regional boundaries were a primary driver for updates to the CMS emergency preparedness rule. As part of its initial statement of purpose, widespread natural and manmade disasters — ranging from hurricanes and flooding to flu pandemics and terrorist attacks — challenge the ability of communities to maintain continuity of healthcare services.

The supply chain director opened the hospital’s command center and a LiveProcess event log at noon on a Saturday. One of the features the group noted as most useful was the ability to electronically log updates and allow them to be shared by any user with access to the system, providing situational awareness.
US hospitals lack collaborative competency and disaster resilience for large-scale emergency preparedness, says a two-year hospital emergency preparedness analysis by Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. Read this blog post to learn about collaboration and the Framework for Healthcare Disaster Resilience.
This composite account reflects actual events in hospitals affected by Hurricane Harvey, and the measures they took to ensure safety and appropriate care.
Sheltering in place, planning for power, and collaborating with community partners are all part of CMS emergency preparedness compliance for long-term care facilities. Learn about the four vital pieces in the communication plan required for CMS emergency preparedness compliance. As a healthcare facility, CMS requires you to prepare for the problems you can anticipate and develop emergency preparedness plans to mitigate the damage.
What is your hospital’s level of emergency preparedness for the hazards most likely to occur in your community? Hospitals are required to conduct a hazard vulnerability assessment (HVA) and review it at least annually. The likelihood of each threat can help you to prioritize emergency planning, mitigation, response and recovery.
In this white paper you’ll learn: 8 keys to severe weather emergency preparedness planning; the importance of involving partners, suppliers and regional emergency management coalitions; why you might want a COOP for CMS emergency preparedness requirements; how severe weather fits into an all-hazards vulnerability analysis (HVA); and 3 useful tools for your incident command team.
