Hospital disaster preparedness… healthcare resilience, risk management, disaster recovery and continuity solutions that promote a healthy outlook for hospitals and health systems
We understand that the Healthcare industry has unique regulations & requirements. More so than any other industry, organizational continuity planning in the Healthcare environment directly impacts individual lives. In healthcare, operational recovery planning requires an automated system focus which interoperates with the healthcare information technology (HIT) dependent functions in the planning process. Medical care can be dependent on information technology & patient data, such as laboratory & diagnostic test data for each patient at any phase of disaster recovery.
For this reason, Virtual Corporation promises you an extraordinary commitment to areas of healthcare business continuity management (BCM), including engaging leadership and gaining their commitment to resourcing an appropriately scaled BCM program rather than expecting already loaded emergency management resources to take this on. Our solutions are not only intuitive and optimized for healthcare, but they are also designed in a way that leverages our experience assisting other hospitals & healthcare systems.
Our software product, Sustainable Planner, comes out-of-the-box with CMS & ISO compliant templates for business impact analysis, recovery planning, emergency management, hazard vulnerability assessments, and IT disaster recovery. To accelerate new departments creating their first BC plan, Virtual Corporation provides fully populated clinical, academic, research, and administrative plans.
In addition to keeping compliant, your program needs to be responsive. You need an organizational continuity management (OCM) program that addresses assurance and allows you to manage risk and effectively meet patient, member, community, and regulatory expectations.
