The Center for Biosecurity of UPMC (the Center) was asked by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to evaluate the Healthcare Facilities Partnership Program (HFPP) and the Emergency Care Partnership Program (ECP), both of which were funded through competitive grants in FY2007–FY2008.1,2

The goal of the evaluation was to assess the effectiveness, efficiency, and impact of the partnership programs for the purpose of informing future funding and support for the development of healthcare partnerships throughout the United States. In so doing, this evaluation identifies key accomplishments of and lessons learned by the partnerships as they worked to improve preparedness and response efforts in their communities.

This Partnership Evaluation Report: Healthcare Facilities Partnerships & Emergency Care Partnerships (Partnership Evaluation Report) does not provide a detailed evaluation of the outcome of each individual partnership grant, since site visit reports and evaluations of the project outcomes have already been performed by project officers and ASPR program leadership. Rather, this report is intended primarily for use by ASPR and HHS in assessing the effectiveness of the partnership programs and the direct grant funding mechanism.
