The 2018 Juvare Preparedness Summit is fast approaching. While your Summit experience will include presentations by world-class thought leaders, invaluable training opportunities, guru sessions with Juvare subject matter experts and fun social events, our Clients’ Share-a-Thon presentations always emerge as the true stars of Summit. I encourage you to make plans to attend the following sessions that feature real-life experiences and identify insightful best practices.

17 Days with Harvey: Using WebEOC to Coordinate 1,000+ Facilities

  • Who: Lori Upton, Director of Preparedness and Operations, South East Texas Regional Advisory Council (SETRAC)
  • Why: As a leader of one of the nation’s largest healthcare coalitions that spans a large coastal area, Lori is no stranger to massive storm response operations. However, Hurricane Harvey served up some unique challenges. Join Lori as she provides a behind-the-scenes look at the SETRAC Medical Operations Center’s use of Juvare technologies during this devastating Category 4 storm, including the successful coordination of over 1,000 facilities spanning 25 counties.

  • Who: Barrett Hanks, WebEOC Administrator, and Diana Chorn, Assistant Division Director of Administration, Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Council (STRAC)

Diana and Barrett will share key components of their impressive solution that facilitates the rapid identification of available mental health services, significantly shortening the time required for law enforcement engagement.
