INSIGHTS AND PERSPECTIVES
I’ve heard more than one organization shrug off the prospect of a disaster causing irreparable harm to their operation. Then, an unexpected circumstance causes the business not only to falter, but puts recovery in question altogether.
Contingency planning is essential for that very reason – preparation for the unexpected. And it is these unexpected events that can cause havoc to day-to-day business operations.

Today’s fast-paced healthcare environment faces mounting physician shortages, increasing health premiums, and a health system that ushers patients quickly from the care in a hospital setting to either self-care or family caregiver support at home.
