Closing the seams: Developing an integrated approach to health system disaster preparedness

A disaster occurs every week in the US, and the numbers are increasing. Yet despite increased federal and state funding since 2001 and lessons learned following 9/11 and natural disasters like large-scale hurricanes and floods, disaster planning in the healthcare arena remains sporadic, disconnected and under-funded. PwC Health Research Institute's (HRI's) Closing the seams analyzes preparedness throughout every key element of our healthcare system, identifies gaps, and highlights emerging solutions and innovative best practices that can be leveraged to make the most of our resources and help those in the emergency response and healthcare communities deliver the best healthcare possible in the face of unknown disasters.
