Emergency Preparedness

Back to 2019 Annual Report

In a widespread emergencywhen families are displaced or separatedfinding loved ones is of the utmost importance. Thanks to Rochester RHIO’s work with the Western Region Health Emergency Preparedness Coalition, family members would be able to find out which hospitals their loved ones are receiving treatment at during a widespread emergency or disaster.

This basic system access—activated only during a declared state of emergency—not only helps family members find each other, but also ensures those with chronic or life-threatening conditions receive the care they need during a time of crisis.

RHIO has deepened its relationships with the New York State Department of Health, county governments and emergency services agencies as a participant in disaster planning exercises, helping ensure that meaningful data is readily available to aid response and recovery efforts.
