In this webinar speaker will explain When a disaster hits your office, what do you do next?


HIPAA requires you to have both a Contingency Operations Plan and a Disaster Recovery Plan in place. In case you are wondering, being on a cloud-based EHR is not a Disaster Recovery Plan.

When disaster hits your practice - hurricane, flood, tornado, fire - there are hundreds of items that need to be addressed. Your number one goal is to start generating revenue again - that means seeing patients ASAP. In reality, a Contingency plan and a Disaster plan work hand-in-hand together.

There are so many overlapping parts that it just makes sense to talk about them as one big plan.

Why should you Attend: You show up at your practice and there is nothing but a smoldering pile of ashes. What are the first 3 things you are going to do? What are the next 5 things you are going to do? As your world spins around you with hundreds of questions being asked of you. What are you going to do?
