Healthcare Imaging Business Continuity Plan

Business Continuity Planning: Safeguard Your Imaging Organisation with AdvaHealth Solution

In today’s healthcare landscape, uninterrupted access to patient data is paramount. Disruptions, whether natural disasters, cyberattacks, or even power outages, can significantly impact your imaging organisation’s ability to deliver optimal patient care. Downtime can lead to delays in diagnosis and treatment, frustrated patients, and even financial losses.

At AdvaHealth Solutions, we understand the critical nature of operational continuity. That’s why we’re proud to introduce our Business Continuity Plan (BCP), specifically designed for imaging organisations. Our BCP goes beyond hypothetical scenarios, offering a comprehensive solution to ensure continued operations and patient data security during challenging situations.

The alarming reality of disruptions in healthcare

Disruptions aren’t just a possibility; they’re a reality. Consider these alarming statistics:

  • 539 reported attacks on healthcare organisations between 2016 and October 2023, highlighting the prevalence of cyber threats.*
  • Over 52 million patient records compromised, demonstrating the high stakes of data breaches.*
  • Nearly 19 days of average downtime in 2023 alone, showcasing the significant financial and operational impact of disruptions.*
