Hupert, N., Biala, K., Holland, T., et al. (2015). Optimizing Health Care Coalitions: Conceptual Frameworks and a Research Agenda. Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness. 9(6): 717-723.
The authors provide an overview of the Hospital Preparedness Program and healthcare coalitions in general. This is followed by a description of two frameworks they created to give coalition leaders improved insight into “how different enterprises achieve similar ends relevant to emergency response.” The authors also provide a research agenda related to coalition contribution to the healthcare system.
