Business Continuity Plan for Health Care
BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN/DISASTER RECOVERY TRAINING IN HEALTHCARE.
Several challenges lie on the road to establishing and running a successful company. On January 10th2009, one of the local Banks which had its server room located in the Basement of their office Block found the entire Basement flooded including the core banking server. This led to massive outage and loss of revenue. It took five days to set the business back to normal. Disasters can strike at any moment, and service outages can cost you both your reputation and money. Without a tested business continuity and disaster recovery plan, the bank could have collapsed.
Change has always been a constant in healthcare but today’s convergence of healthcare reforms like the shift to accountable care, risk-sharing in medicines including artificial intelligence, machine learning and interest of things in Health-service delivery mean the future of healthcare is heavily reliant on ICT and similar expertise.
On 2nd February 2019, the onset of heavy rain left the private wing of one of the hospitals in Kampala flooded and patients scattering for their lives. Part of the ceiling board collapsed, walkways were filled with water and windows and ceiling boards started leaking. Most of the beds in ward 7 were wetted by the water flowing from windows and ceiling boards that health workers were forced to transfer mothers and the new-borns to the special care unit. This left business at the hospital at a standstill and delivered a wakeup call about the need for an updated recovery and business continuity plans as the hospital lost both the primary and secondary data centers. So whether it’s natural disasters, epidemics, human error causing unexpected downtime or cybersecurity threats, senior leadership must plan for service interruptions to protect themselves and their patients. This is the minimum standard of service delivery in healthcare.
In line with this, the Institute of Forensics and ICT Security has organized a training in Business Continuity Planning / Disaster Recovery Planning for health care.
