Emergency Preparedness Network Grant Manager - MNCHA (Part-Time)

Posted on February 19, 2021

The Maryland-National Capitol Homecare Association (MNCHA) manages a grant from the Maryland Department of Health Office of Preparedness and Response (MDH OP&R) to support, promote and expand the Emergency Preparedness Network (EPN). The primary components of the grant are:

  • Foundation for Health Care and Medical Readiness: The foundation for health care and medical readiness enables the health care delivery system and other organizations that contribute to responses to coordinate efforts before, during, and after emergencies; continue operations; and appropriately surge, as necessary.

  • Health Care and Medical Response Coordination: Health care and medical response coordination enables the health care delivery system and other organizations to share information, manage and share resources, and integrate their activities with their jurisdictions' lead agency at the state and federal level.

  • Continuity of Health Care Service Delivery: The ability to deliver health care services is likely to be interrupted when internal or external systems such as utilities, electronic health records (EHRs), and supply chains are compromised.

  • Medical Surge: Medical surge is the ability to evaluate and care for a markedly increased volume of patients that exceeds normal operating capacity. Surge capacity is the ability to manage a sudden influx of patients. It is dependent on a well-functioning incident command system (ICS) and the variables of space, supplies, and staff.
