Rural Health Surge Readiness Web Portal

Posted on

We know rural health care faces unique challenges in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Federal Healthcare Resilience Working Group (HRWG) has developed the Rural Health Surge Readiness web portal, a collection of essential rural health care resources, tools, and training that health care workers and organizations – including EMS & 911, inpatient & hospital care, ambulatory care, and long-term care – can utilize to prepare for and respond to COVID-19.

This one-stop shop for rural health care lets users quickly find the information they need to prepare for or respond to surge events, navigate financial challenges related to the pandemic, and can enhance their capacity and capability to provide lifesaving care to Americans who live in rural areas across the country.

Check out the portal
