Is Your Practice Prepared for a Disaster?

SVMIC recently held a disaster preparedness “tabletop” drill where it tested the company’s Business Continuity Plan, an exercise we wholeheartedly recommend for all our members and practices.

Disaster preparedness is a topic that often falls through the proverbial cracks because it is time-consuming, and can feel like time wasted, getting ready for something that may never happen. Common sense tells us, however, that the time spent preparing in advance will pay tremendous dividends if and when a true disaster does come to bear.

We asked Owen Dahl, a former medical practice executive who wrote The Medical Practice Disaster Guide Book and has experience managing a medical facility through Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters, to put together a quick guide for SVMIC practices to follow in setting up your own Business Continuity Plan. This quick guide can be found here by logging into your Vantage® account.

Practices who need assistance with disaster planning or other practice management issues can reach out to SVMIC’s Medical Practice Services group at 800.342.2239 or
