Disasters strike. It’s not a question of whether, but of when. While many emergencies can’t be foreseen, they can certainly be anticipated.
In a recent poll of VarianVision webinar participants:

  • only 28% reported having emergency preparedness plans in place
  • only 5% said they have emergency preparedness budget allocations

In this roundtable discussion, you will hear two perspectives on emergency preparedness:

  • Noted healthcare leaders who experienced the impact of major disasters will discuss
    • Lessons learned
    • Changes implemented
    • Strategies to ensure organizations can continue helping patients or recover quickly if operations come to a halt
  • An emergency-preparedness consultant for healthcare systems and medical centers worldwide will discuss
    • Best business continuity practices
    • Strategies for long-term recovery planning
