The CMS Final Rule – 3178 regarding emergency preparedness was effective November 15, 2016 and must be implemented by November 15, 2017.    These rules are conditions of participation (CoP) for providers serving Medicare and Medicaid patients.   This is the first time that such comprehensive emergency preparedness CoPs have been developed.  There are four key areas within this rule: 

·         Risk assessment

·         Risk assessment based policies and procedures

·         Communications plan

·         Training and testing

The WVPCA continues to partner with BOLDplanning to help health centers meet these new guidelines.  Twenty health centers have been trained and are using the web-based Continuity of Operations (COOP) program available through the WVPCA.  Utilizing this software will allow the participating health centers to meet the risk assessment, policies/procedures and communication expectations.  The WVPCA will host a tabletop exercise on November 1, 2017 to meet the training and testing requirement.  The tabletop exercise will be interactive and applicable to emergency/natural disasters that could occur in our state.  We strongly encourage you to send 2-3 staff members to this training and if possible, include 1 clinical staff member on your team.  The clinical team member can provide valuable insight as you work through a mock disaster during the training. Each team should bring 1 laptop computer.

The registration form for this workshop is available here.    If you have any questions, please contact Ruby Piscopo ruby.piscopo@wvpca.org or Louise Reese louise@wvpca.org.
