HMCC Definition and Sample Plans
A Health and Medical Coordinating Coalition (HMCC) will be a multi-agency coordination entity with associated staffing that supports Emergency Support Function 8 (ESF8) activities, public health and medical services, at a local and regional level. Core disciplines in the HMCC will be community health centers and large ambulatory care organizations, emergency medical service providers (public and private), hospitals, local public health and long-term care facilities. HMCCs will also reach out to include key ESF8 supporting partners such as home health, pharmacies, dialysis centers, mental and behavioral health providers, urgent care, and social services agencies. By June 30, 2017, one HMCC will be established in each of the six existing Massachusetts Department of Public Health Hospital Preparedness regions.
