The Hospital Preparedness Program works with the 22 statewide trauma service area (TSA) regions to develop and implement healthcare coalitions. DSHS conducts monthly HPP contractor meetings in order to provide technical assistance and program guidance.
In 2012, the ASPR HPP and CDC PHEP programs were aligned to better support state and local efforts in emergency preparedness and to integrate the work of the public health and first responder communities. This program alignment establishes better coordinated public health and healthcare system planning and response, improved ability to leverage funding for joint activities, and reduced burden on awardees regarding duplicative and redundant reporting.
