Evans Incorporated is the Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Provider of Choice
Natural disasters. Acts of terrorism. Disease outbreaks. Now more than ever, effective emergency preparedness is needed across all healthcare provider types to ensure the well-being of vulnerable populations during a disruptive event, whether patients are in long-term care, acute care or community-based healthcare facilities.
Specifically, the Evans healthcare team has the know-how to help healthcare providers challenged to meet the November 15, 2017 deadline for implementation of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) revised emergency preparedness requirements. These rules are designed to increase patient safety during emergencies and establish a more coordinated response to natural and human-caused disasters. The Evans team is ready and willing to help healthcare providers “think outside the box” – and challenge the status quo, if necessary – in order to meet the deadline.
