DQE - Your Partner in Preparedness
DQE believes in a full cycle of preparedness that begins with an initial client interaction to assess needs, budget, and expectations. We then proceed through a series of finely tuned processes, communications, and procedures that ensure seamless delivery of comprehensive services in an economical and time-efficient manner. Our service delivery concludes with a series of support tools that sustain and enhance a facility's ongoing readiness.
DQE has nearly 25 years of experience in assisting healthcare facilities throughout the U.S. meet their emergency preparedness planning and training needs. Our client list of over 600 healthcare facilities includes: critical access, rural and community hospitals, trauma, military and academic centers, specialty hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, as well as coalitions, regional hospital planning groups and associations. At DQE, partnerships and long-term relationships are valued and how our staff provides services is as important as the content we deliver.
Fostering a Community & Regional Approach
Experience has shown us that it's important for individual organizations to conduct effective planning, training and exercising. Equally important, when it comes to major events, is to foster and build community and regional approaches to health and medical capabilities. This has led to the development of coalitions made up of healthcare organizations, key response partners, support organizations and other entities which are necessary to include in preparedness and response efforts. DQE has a long history of providing thoughtful planning and consulting efforts, along with unique training and exercises that prepare multi-disciplined personnel to think and respond proficiently in a disaster. In doing this throughout the United States, and the world, DQE has earned a first-class reputation. We are very proud of this and we continue to work hard to exceed the expectations of our clients.
A well-prepared community or region is one that is able to respond quickly and with agility to mass casualty events of all sizes and sources, including those that cross jurisdictional boundaries, to minimize loss of life, suffering, and serious adverse effects on society. Such a system should include every hospital, EMA, Public Health, Transit, Fire Department, Police Agency, PSA provider, EMS agency, other healthcare institutions and every level of government in the region. A well-prepared system should be able to provide care for the sick and injured, protect the well, maintain essential healthcare services and an appearance of social normalcy for the general population. The system should be able to harness all useful regional public and private resources to cope with varying levels of Mass Casualty Incidents. DQE will be your partner and, utilizing our proprietary capabilities assessment tools, help you obtain a clear picture of your current state of preparedness as measured against objective best practice standards and national core capabilities.
