Healthcare Lunch Panel Discussion: Ebola, Zika, & Other Pandemic Preparation and Response

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The spread of Ebola, tuberculosis, Avian, Swine or other deadly flu viruses, measles, Zika Virus, Yellow Fever and a host of other contagious diseases with pandemic potential to the US have uncovered serious gaps in the U.S understanding and preparedness to respond to and manage pandemic and other public health emergencies. 

We will start with a short multimedia "Dark Winter" game senario.  This is a game that members of Congress played in 2001 to grasp in a very graphic way using big data to determine how pandemics can start small and explode into uncontrollable magnitudes very quickly.

We will then present some of the operational response planning and deployment needs that are likely to hit major cities like Los Angeles, London, etc.

Having lay the groundwork, we will then discuss the delicate balance between security/privacy vs. Stategic. We will explore the management of the dynamic and processes that would be brought into play in connection with the investigation and control of the response to the crisis, while at the same time maintaining both the security of PHI and other sensitive communications and activities necessary to prevent mass panic and other concerns.
