Bridging the gap…between the business of medicine and the practice of medicine.

July / Aug 2007: Emergency Planning

Emergency Planning

What would happen if there were a fire in your office and you couldn’t see patients? Is your practice prepared for the possibility of a flu pandemic? Does your insurance at home and office include adequate coverage for flooding?

Nobody likes to think about what can go wrong. But emergency planning makes more than just good business sense for healthcare organizations. It can also enhance the quality and continuity of patient care.

In this issue of Doctor’s Digest, we look at the ins and outs of preparing your family, your staff, and your patients for an emergency situation.
