New CMS Requirements

New CMS rules around preparedness will impact certain partners this year.  To this, the WWPHRC and the NWWIHCC have partnered to develop a work plan to assist these partners around the new requirements.  Our main focus will be on home health agencies, end stage renal facilities, long term care facilities and community health centers.


Rather than creating duplicate toolkits, we will point to our partners website for these resources, as they become available;  Once at this site, choose 'Resources'.  Once there, look under 'Helpful Documents'.

The main benefit of consortium membership is standardized, consistent, alignment of emergency response plans.  This allows members to respond, provide support, and rely on each other in any situation with minimal delay in response.  Plan updates/revisions are managed by the consortium director and communicated out to members for adopting/localizing.
