New ASPR TRACIE Gateway Provides Emergency Preparedness Information to Health Professionals

Jun 15, 2015 | Mary Hodges

Whether you work for a hospital, are part of a healthcare coalition, or are a healthcare provider, emergency manager or a public health practitioner, you are probably looking for a smarter way to keep the people who rely on you healthy, safe, and informed when disaster strikes. The ASPR Technical Resources Assistance Center and Information Exchange (ASPR TRACIE) is a new information gateway that connects public health and medical professionals with the emergency preparedness, response, and recovery information that they need. ASPR TRACIE can help you quickly identify resources to get your planning started, build on the experience of your colleagues, prioritize activities for the future, make smart decisions, find training, and get answers to your questions. Using ASPR TRACIE can help you and your organization plan for disasters more efficiently and effectively.

ASPR TRACIE is divided into three main parts:

  • Technical Resources (TR): The technical resources section provides a collection of disaster, medical, healthcare and public health preparedness materials. This section includes a series of Topic Collections, which are annotated bibliographies vetted by experts in the field that highlight key resources under specific public health and medical topics. They include a short list of “Must Reads” as well as additional resources, such as studies, toolkits, lessons learned, planning guides, trainings ‚and more. To go even more in depth on a topic, you can also search the ASPR TRACIE Resource Library, which includes the National Library of Medicine’s DisasterLitTM, a database of over 8,000 records from over 700 organizations.
  • Assistance Center (AC): Sometimes, you need a person’s help who has the expertise to provide guidance, identify gaps, and answer questions. ASPR TRACIE Technical Assistance specialists can help you navigate the research materials; find resources to support training and exercises; identify upcoming training and exercises; and more.
  • Information Exchange (IE): Working together, we can find better solutions than we do on our own. Users will be able to ask questions, discuss past experiences, and share plans and other resources.
