Abstract

The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was responsible for administering healthcare to over 5 million patients in 2011. After the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, VA preparedness leaders initiated development of the Subject Matter Expertise Center for Biological Events (SMEC-bio) as a mechanism for communication of timely VHA infectious diseases expertise for decision support. A Report template was designed and SMEC-bio has provided eight ad hoc Reports to leadership. This work reviews the Reports (e.g. reason for report, data sources, outcome) and the results of a gap analysis to inform a formalized, routine communication plan.
