WEBINAR: Healthcare Continuity Planning for Natural Disaster


Course Curriculum
Natural disasters can cost businesses significant money, or worse, shut them down for good. The National Centers for Environmental Information has documented that since 1980, the United States has endured 178 weather and climate-related disasters with a price tag topping $1 billion each. The total cost of these events exceeds $1 trillion. Hospitals follow emergency operations plans to protect life and property from the immediate impact to natural, human-caused, or technological threat strike, but how do they safeguard their business operations and revenue from a long-term sustainable event? They establish a continuity of operations plan (COOP).  

Also referred to as a business continuity plan, a COOP is an all-hazards roadmap to follow in case of a major interruption to operations. This presentation will address how a COOP can assist healthcare organizations in maintaining or resuming critical business functions after a disaster and reconstituting services at an alternate site, as well as business processes, human resources, and assets.  The presentation will also discuss steps and resources healthcare organizations can use to comply with the Congress-approved CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, Federal regulations at 42 C.F.R. §§422.503 and 423.504), which required compliance on November 15 of last year.

At the completion of this program, the participants will be able to:
1. Explain how healthcare organizations conduct a busineess impact analysis to identify time-sensitive or critical business functions and processes and the resources that support them. 
2. Identify, document, and implement steps to recover critical business functions and processes. 
3. Discuss best practices on how to organize a business continuity team and compile a business continuity plan to manage a business disruption. 
4. Identify available resources to assist healthcare organizations in the development of a business coninuity plan. 

Target Audience
