Nevada Health Alert Network (NVHAN)
The state of Nevada, Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH), Public Health Preparedness Program (PHP), administers the Nevada Health Alert Network (NVHAN). NVHAN is administered through a program called EMResource. In addition to delivering NVHAN Messages, EMResource is a statewide bed tracking, availability and alerting system used in each hospital throughout the state. NVHAN relays important healthcare information received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local agencies via Technical Bulletins.
This is a password protected website requiring Username and Password entry before access is permitted. The system is intended for healthcare professionals, first responders, law enforcement, and critical infrastructure agencies such as energy, water, communications, etc. This system allows us to transmit confidential information not intended for public dissemination during a public health emergency. The system also contains a large library feature for Users to access past NVHAN documents that have been sent out previously. EMResource is a vital component of the Nevada Health Alert Network for immediate transmission of critical health information during a catastrophic event in our state. Nevada also shares bed tracking and critical health information with California, Colorado, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, and Oregon.
