“The public health mission to protect the public’s health and prevent disease is dependent upon effective and useful logistical systems designed specifically for the purposes of the public health practitioner.”

This essay focuses on the challenges in tracking patients before, during, and after events. This is important to resiliency because the health and well being of our population both in the immediate aftermath and in the recovery phase from an event contribute to the ability to rebound from a challenge and return to a more normal state of affairs. The significance of this element in preparedness is reflected in the National Health Security Strategy in the strategic objectives related to situational awareness and scalable health delivery systems, but also in the over arching vision of a healthy population.
