Specifications include, but are not limited to:This Request for Response (RFR) is for the purpose of selecting a sponsoring organization for the Region 4AB Health and Medical Coordinating Coalition (HMCC). Appendix 1 includes a map identifying the communities that are included in the 4AB HMCC. The sponsoring organization will act as both the fiscal agent for the HMCC and provide programmatic and administrative support. The duties and responsibilities of the sponsoring organization are described in more detail in the Scope of Service that is part of this RFR.In 2003-2004, the Center for Emergency Preparedness within the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), worked with 351 municipalities and 75 acute care hospitals across the state to identify and establish Emergency Preparedness Regions. Seven public health preparedness regions were established, and within those regions communities chose to organize 16 Emergency Preparedness Coalitions of varying size. Six hospital preparedness regions were established, following the same geographic boundaries as the public health regions but combining two public health regions (4A and 4B) into a single hospital region (4AB). Preparedness activities undertaken within the public health and hospital regions must be consistent with federal guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Grant (PHEP), and the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) for the Hospital Preparedness Program Grant (HPP).HPP and PHEP now require a more integrated approach to health and medical preparedness and response that builds capacity across all phases of the disaster cycle: preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. A key component under the aligned responsibilities is development of multi-disciplinary health and medical coalitions that will work together to plan for, respond to, recover from and mitigate the impact of emergencies affecting public health. To achieve this integrated health and medical preparedness capacity, the DPH Office of Preparedness and Emergency Management (OPEM) is establishing six (6) regional HMCCs, one in each existing hospital preparedness region. Each HMCC will establish a governing group that must include equal representation from core health and medical disciplines: community health centers and large ambulatory care organizations, emergency medical services (EMS), hospitals, long term care facilities and local public health.
