Stronger Together: Healthcare Coalitions in Rural and Frontier Areas

Natural and man-made emergencies can have complex and devastating effects for any jurisdiction. However, rural and frontier communities face unique challenges to preparing for and responding to potential threats. Healthcare coalitions (HCCs) are multidisciplinary groups that include representatives from public health, emergency management, emergency medical services, hospitals and other community partners. Through the HCC, these organizations are able to enhance jurisdictional preparedness and response capabilities by coordinating planning efforts; creating and sharing resources and best practices; hosting trainings and conducting exercises; and providing technical assistance to enhance stakeholder preparedness programs. In this presentation, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and HCC representatives will provide an overview of the strengths and challenges experienced by rural and frontier HCCs and discuss how these groups work to make their communities more resilient.
