Emergency Mgmt Events

Third Annual Emergency Preparedness Seminar for Primary Care


Hosted by:  PCEPN, in partnership with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH)
The main focus of this year's Seminar is the recently-released CMS Final Rule for Emergency Preparedness that establishes national requirements for Medicare and Medicaid providers/suppliers. This much-anticipated rule represents a major update of these regulations - setting new compliance requirements for 17 provider/supplier types, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) / Rural Health Clinics (RHCs). The presenters will also discuss the future of healthcare preparedness and look at national and international perspectives on the issue.  Speakers will include:

  • Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (TRACIE) by Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness & Response (ASPR)
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
  • Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
  • Americares, a US-based international relief organization.

The Seminar is especially recommended for staff working in primary care settings, including FQHCs and Article 28 outpatient clinics.
