Emergency Preparedness

Hope for the best. 

Prepare for the worst.

 

What is a health emergency?

A health emergency is a mass-casualty incident (MCI) in which emergency medical resources, like personnel and equipment, are overwhelmed by the number and severity of casualties. Health emergencies can happen suddenly, change quickly, involve many casualties, and can overwhelm the capacity of almost any healthcare system.

Emergency Preparedness (EP) helps to save lives, preserve healthcare systems and meet any health emergency with confidence, expert training, a clear plan, and a path to recovery.

Primary Care

Israel: where Care is Primary.

 

The primary care-led HMO system developed in Israel is a great case study for many countries trying to develop a cheaper, less hospital-dominated model of care for the twenty-first century.

-In Search of the Perfect Health System, Mark Britnell.


Healthcare in Israel begins with the family doctor, community health centers, and a holistic healthcare system that puts patients first.

Israel has “one of the most progressive primary care services in the world” and the results are “low infant mortality, high life expectancy, effective chronic disease management and excellent primary care.” - In Search of the Perfect Health System, Mark Britnell.

Israel measures how well it serves patients, and publicly publishes quality measurements (outcomes), service indicators (waiting times, follow-ups), and patient satisfaction rates.
