“I’m sorry, our system is down.” – One sentence that makes any CIO’s blood pressure skyrocket. Today hospital staffs have been trained to use systems and rely on electronics for just about everything they need to do to get their job done. But what happens when those systems go down?
Whether your HIS vendor system or network goes down due to unforeseen reasons, or due to planned maintenance, having a downtime plan is imperative. Leaving patients and staff confused, stressed, unhappy and uncoordinated is unacceptable. Obviously these situations are unavoidable, but there are ways to make them more manageable.
Hospitals need to adopt a robust technology that will keep information available and easily accessible for hospital staff. Without the right technology in place, the hospitals ability to ensure patient safety and to provide reliable, up-to-date information is near impossible during any type of downtime.
With the right technology and reliable staff, the Summit Downtime Reporting System can provide hospitals with an easy-to-use platform for business continuity. A comprehensive solution that ensures safety and reliability and a significant return on investment, all while enabling your staff access to what they need, when they need it.
