"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (TRACIE) worked with Yale New Haven Health System Center for Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response (YNHHS-CEPDR) to gain insight on the perceived preparedness and response levels of primary care providers across the U.S. This work also allowed the project team to identify opportunities to support primary care provider planning efforts. Following a comprehensive environmental scan and detailed literature review, ASPR TRACIE and YNHHS-CEPDR determined that representatives of primary care provider professional associations could provide additional insight on the status of their members' preparedness and response and the most effective ways to engage their members in healthcare readiness efforts. YNHHS-CEPDR conducted one-on-one interviews with leaders of these membership organizations (listed in table 1) on behalf of ASPR TRACIE to better understand their members' capacity and level of preparedness for and challenges related to disaster response."
