DOH to Offer E-Finds Training

Evacuation of Facilities in Disaster System (eFINDS) training has been scheduled by the NYSDOH Office of Health Emergency Preparedness (OHEP) at various locations in the state. eFINDS is a tracking system/application on the Health Commerce System (HCS) that should be used by a healthcare facility in the event of an emergent, urgent or planned evacuation. The application captures minimal amounts of data and allows facilities to track the evacuee movement to other facilities, facility types or temporary shelters. The training is a Train-the-Trainer format, open to all providers utilizing eFINDS, including nursing homes and adult care facilities. The dates and locations of the training are available on the Health Commerce System (HCS).  The training announcement provides additional registration information.
