Fact sheet defining health care COOP planning.
Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) is focused on health care system recovery planning as outlined in the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) Cooperative Agreement by the Assistant Secretary of Preparedness and Response in Capability 2 - Health Care System Recovery:
Health care system recovery involves the collaboration with emergency management and other community partners (e.g. public health, medical and education) to develop efficient processes and advocate for the rebuilding of public health, medical and mental/behavioral health systems to at least a level of functioning comparable to pre-incident levels and improved levels where possible. The focus is an effective and efficient return to normalcy or a new standard of normalcy for the provision of healthcare delivery to the community.
The information and tools located on this site are intended to support the ability of Minnesota’s eight regional Health Coalitions to achieve the program requirements as outlined in Capability 2 – Health Care System Recovery above and the corresponding Program Measures.
