Introduction to the Disaster Available Supplies in Hospitals (DASH) Tool webinar

Monday, August 15, 2022

Hospitals deal with stressed supply chains every day. Just-in-time inventory is common, and hospitals run the risk of not having
enough supplies when a disaster strikes. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant
Secretary for Preparedness and Response Technical Resources, Assistance Center, and Information Exchange (ASPR TRACIE) and
Healthcare Ready developed the Disaster Available Supplies in Hospitals (DASH) tool in collaboration with the Health Industry
Distributors Association, the Region VII Disaster Health Response Ecosystem, and other subject matter experts to address this
challenge. DASH is an online, interactive tool for hospital emergency planners and supply chain staff to estimate supplies that
may need to be immediately available during various emergencies based on their hospital’s characteristics. Speakers in this
webinar will provide an overview and demonstration of DASH and share information on how it may be used from both the
hospital and supply chain perspective.
