Efforts to contain the economic burden of healthcare in the United States have resulted in improved efficiency in hospital operations 

In part, these efficiencies have been obtained by reducing bed capacity, running near maximum hospital capacity and adjusting resources including staffing ratios 

Healthcare systems are now being charged with the task of increasing surge capacity to accommodate an influx of patients requiring triage and emergent care with little or no advance warning 

The purpose of the Hospital Emergency Support Functions Project is to identify staff capabilities and capacity available throughout the hospital that might be reassigned to both clinical and non-clinical services
