National Health Security Preparedness Index
The National Health Security Preparedness Index is a new way to measure and advance our nation's preparedness. The Index represents the most comprehensive set of health security preparedness measures to date. The 2013 Index consists primarily of public health and healthcare system measures. Future versions of the Index will add other sectors to more fully illustrate the wide variety of elements contributing to health security preparedness.  The National Health Security Preparedness Index has state by state results.



The 2013 Oregon Index Results provides agencies with information regarding the state's health capabilities. The Index provides Oregon an opportunity to focus on potential strengths and to better develop and strengthen partnerships and collaborations to improve health security.
