Healthcare Ready is a 501(c)3 nonprofit funded by membership support and donations from private sector companies, foundations and associations, and through research projects and studies funded by both the public and private sector. Because our operations are not funded by taxpayer money, we are only able to operate and provide our services – both during emergencies and year-round – through the support of members, project sponsors and donors.
During emergencies, Healthcare Ready operates our Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and provides response coordination and support, including our one-of-a-kind online mapping tool, Rx Open, at no cost to communities during disasters and infectious disease outbreaks.
Healthcare Ready was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when a group of organizations in the healthcare supply chain began coordinating their efforts to better respond to the crisis.
In the 10 years and over 60 events since, countless more companies, associations, and individuals have reached out to us in the same generous spirit as our founding organizations – to help ensure tragedies like the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina never happen again.
