EP Seminar

About

On March 23, 2017, in partnership with NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), PCEPN, hosted its Third Annual Emergency Preparedness Seminar for Primary Care.


The main focus of this year's Seminar was the newly released CMS final rule for Emergency Preparedness (81 FR 63859) that established 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 program included speakers from:

  • 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.
