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.
Building the resiliency of our communities supports health and creates economic strength so that if disaster strikes quality of life returns to normal as fast as possible. Working together we ensure that we are stronger than the next disaster.
