FEMA recently released a draft of the National Incident Management System refresh (NIMS 3.0), the first update since 2008. And they introduced a new term, the Center Management System (CMS). When response and recovery operations are in play, it is within the CMS that healthcare coalitions appear to plug in.
But they don't.
You see, there’s a distinct difference between a healthcare coalition and what NIMS 3.0 defines as an operations/coordination center – which is nestled into the newly coined CMS.
