Community resilience depends upon a strong healthcare system.
This is doubly true during times of disaster.
Healthcare Ready (formerly Rx Response) helps to strengthen healthcare supply chains through collaboration with public health and private sectors by addressing pressing issues before, during, and after disasters. As the convener of industry and government, we safeguard patient health by providing solutions to critical problems. And, we provide best practices for healthcare preparedness and response.
