Calling the healthcare CIO’s plate full is an understatement, to say the least. Between the HITECH Act supporting the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs), the multiple requirements involved as part of the three Meaningful Use stages identified for EHR adoption, new ICD-10 Codes, payment reform, health information exchanges, patient and provider portals, phew. It’s no wonder that disaster recovery planning often gets left off the plate—relegated, if it’s lucky, to a fruit cup on the side.
And yet, the importance of Disaster Recovery Planning has never been greater in the healthcare industry than it is today. Healthcare organizations—and hospitals in particular—must maintain a high degree of system and network availability. Their patients’ lives quite literally depend on it. If the system goes down and a healthcare organization can’t access its’ patients’ data, the health of those patients is placed in jeopardy.
