The Preparedness Planning, Outcomes, and Measures workgroup held its monthly call on January 27. Ann Goodman Hoover, Deputy Director of the National Health Security Preparedness Index (NHSPI) Program Management Office at the University of Kentucky, gave an informational update on the evolution of the NHSPI. The presentation gave an overview of the 2014 Index, highlighted structural changes, and discussed the areas of relative strength nationally and for development. The presentation concluded with the steps that will be taken to refine the Index over the next few years and how local health departments can engage in the future development. The call closed out with NACCHO staff updating the workgroup on the 2015 Preparedness Summit and the piloting of an upcoming preparedness survey. The next call is currently scheduled for February 24.
