ABSTRACT

Establishing Medical Operations Coordination Cells (MOCCs) for COVID-19 [presentation]   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Executive Summary: "[1] Some hospitals are overwhelmed with COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] patients, while successful mitigation has created excess capacity in nearby hospitals, creating an opportunity to transfer patients; [2] MOCCs [Medical Operations Coordination Cells] are a strategy to optimize patient distribution by augmenting EOCs [emergency operations centers] with clinical experts that synthesize and coordinate healthcare capacity; [3] The MOCC strategy can be implemented nationwide (at sub-state, state-, and regional levels), through a modifiable toolkit, technical assistance, and federal funding, permitting flexibility for states while optimizing patient distribution."
