Hospitals and other healthcare organizations are accustomed to dealing with urgent situations. But not all critical events are created equal. Some non-routine emergencies can be significant enough to threaten the entire operation and potentially require a relocation of staff.

Circumstances like this require healthcare organizations to have a comprehensive and up-to-date Continuity of Operations (COOP) plan.

To help with this, BOLDplanning has just released a new resource entitled Essential Elements of an Effective Continuity of Operations (COOP) Plan. The document provides a basic COOP template that highlights the type of information required to formulate a solid plan. It also discusses things to consider with regards to technology and third-party consulting resources.

The document is available as a FREE download.
