U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. (n.d.). Emergency System for Advanced Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP). (Accessed 10/5/2015.)
This webpage describes the Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP) program, which provides standards and guidelines to assist states with setting up standardized volunteer databases to support public health and medical response during disasters. ESAR-VHP registries allow volunteers' identities, licenses, credentials, accreditations, and hospital privileges to be verified in advance of an emergency, facilitating more rapid deployment.
