Disasters occur in many forms and the only certainty is that they will happen. The Disaster Planning Conference guides hospitals and health systems to prepare for those disasters, regardless of the type. Planning ahead translates to limited business disruption, personnel safety, maintained data integrity, and established responsibilities during and following the disaster event.
