Personnel Shortages for Federal Health Care Programs During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Personnel supporting federal health care programs are a resource critical to the federal COVID-19 pandemic response efforts.  Health care facilities must be prepared for potential personnel shortages and must have plans and processes in place to mitigate these shortages to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and future pandemics.  The Pandemic Response Accountability Committee will coordinate a review of four federal health care programs, including DOJ, to determine whether these programs, or the providers they reimburse, experienced shortages in health care personnel during the pandemic, the impact of those health care personnel shortages, and strategies used by the Departments to reduce shortages of health care personnel for future pandemics.
