Alternate Care Sites (ACS)

Health emergencies have the potential to overwhelm local healthcare systems. It is anticipated that communities may need to expand their healthcare delivery system to one that includes the role of an alternate care site. An Alternate Care Site (ACS) is a temporary medical system that provides low acuity care during a public health emergency. VeriCor’s ACS System is mobile and robust enough that it can be established near an emergency, or it can expand an existing medical facility in the event of a sudden patient surge. VeriCor’s ACS modules allow you to build an Alternate Care Site to your specifications. A 25-bed, 96-hour demand planning methodology was used to create each module, although they may be scaled according to what you need. Once delivered to you, the system is swift to mobilize and deploy, intuitively organized so staff can access vital equipment and supplies efficiently, and quick to demobilize at the end of the training exercise or operation.

Have a complete Response-Friendly® ACS System ready in 4 easy steps…

Step 1: Determine the scope of care you want…how robust do you want it?
Step 2: Have a VeriCor representative design it…mix & match from 29 standard modules (+ custom).
Step 3: Take delivery and store…it’s ready to respond.
Step 4: Review, train and deploy the Response-Friendly® System with the intuitive SmartBook™. (What’s a SmartBook™?)
