Industry roundtable: How to foster resilience in times of crisis
Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CT
As the healthcare industry continues to grapple with COVID-19 fallout, healthcare facilities must continue to focus on crisis-proofing operations to keep patients and staff safe.
As recent events in the West and Gulf Coasts illustrate, just because we're in the middle of a pandemic doesn't mean other crises are put on hold. Whether it is a hurricane-induced grid outage, or a wildfire driven public safety power shutoff or various other crises that can have a significant on healthcare operations, today's hospital leaders should outfit their organizations with proactive business continuity planning and resilient mission-critical support to mitigate harm.
To address this important topic, we are bringing together a panel of industry professionals to discuss what is top of mind with them and the steps they are taking to design resilient facilities that safeguard critical operations.
- What does resilience in a hospital setting look like and what steps are hospitals taking to ensure continuity of business?
- What cascading effects happen to hospital operations with power outages and how quickly do they happen?
- Can resilient solutions be designed in a sustainable manner?
