Effectiveness of the United States Emergency Preparedness Concerning Pandemics


The effectiveness of the United States Healthcare System's emergency preparedness and pandemic preplanning; as well as the implementation of legislative action, implemented code, and procedure changes are necessary for the survival of our species. This research project examines areas of foreign as well as domestic historical healthcare initiatives and their effectiveness, as well as recent emergency preplanning inclusions and the purpose of their additions for strategic outcomes if needed in the future. Modernized healthcare infrastructure is the backbone of modern society. In a constantly changing technological climate, our world and our nation's healthcare systems strive to be on the cutting edge of medical development to combat deadly contagions and their effects on the world. Our recent past shows us that we can still be unprepared in times of crisis and that our actions and inactions can cause irreversible damage and the loss of life. The purpose of the project is to investigate technological advancements, legislative action, as well as pandemics themselves to determine if the active response aided or hindered the United States Medical infrastructure. Data collected shows the impact of these variables as well as others that are viable when determining effectiveness in most examples. This information will allow legislators, medical professionals, and policy makers to work with virologists and researchers’ accurate measures for the greatest improvement in preparation and logistics.
