Health Alert Network (HAN)
Oregon's Health Alert Network (HAN) connects hospitals, clinics, laboratories, public safety, EMS and many other public health partners via secure web applications that facilitate information sharing throughout Oregon and SW Washington. The system is managed by the Oregon Health Authority - Public Health Division - Health Security, Preparedness and Response Program.
Oregon's hospital capacity web system (HOSCAP) allows health care and emergency preparedness partners to share real time status data.
COVID-19 Hospital Reporting to HHS
To support the nationwide response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting every hospital report a standardized set of questions.
- HOSCAP will report hospital capacity and utilization data on your behalf.
- At this time, HOSCAP will not report hospital’s COVID-19 in-house laboratory testing data requested by HHS.
