This Summit provides practical solutions to hospital emergency management issues and is one of the best and most informative conferences for healthcare emergency managers
Verona, NJ (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
LiveProcess, the market leader in web-based emergency preparedness and incident management solutions for healthcare, today announced that it will be exhibiting at and attending the Third National Emergency Management Summit at the Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel, March 4-6, 2009.
The Summit is the leading forum on disaster, epidemic and terrorism planning, response and recovery for healthcare organizations. An extraordinary confluence of events, both environmental and geopolitical, has created both a heightened risk and a heightened awareness of natural disasters, epidemics and terrorism in the United States. The National Emergency Management Summit seeks to assess these risks and articulate practical approaches to strategies for planning, response and recovery.
LiveProcess was established in the wake of the September 11th attacks and the worldwide SARS outbreak in response to widespread recognition that healthcare needed a better way to plan and respond to disasters. In 2003, LiveProcess launched its centralized, web-based disaster preparation and incident management platform ― the first of its kind for healthcare ― to help healthcare organizations prepare for and respond to both large- and small-scale emergencies and disasters. Today, it is the leader in emergency management for hospitals.
"This Summit provides practical solutions to hospital emergency management issues and is one of the best and most informative conferences for healthcare emergency managers," said Mitch Saruwatari, LiveProcess' vice president of Quality and Compliance. "LiveProcess is proud to be exhibiting at this event."
The purpose of the Summit is to increase knowledge on how emergency management professionals can best prepare for disasters (pandemic, terrorism, and infectious diseases), use scarce resources wisely, implement responses more effectively, and create new partnerships. Participants can expect to leave the conference with a better ability to assess readiness for natural disasters and pandemics, foster best practices through presentation of a variety of successful case studies from the field and explore the difficult legal and ethical issues that arise in emergency situations.
LiveProcess will present a brief case study on how technology can help improve healthcare emergency management programs during the Networking Luncheon on Thursday, March 5th.
LiveProcess is exhibiting at Booth #10 on Wednesday, March 4th and Thursday, March 5th. To arrange interviews with LiveProcess executives, please contact Paul Ruderman at 973-571-2500.

The LiveProcess platform is used by hundreds of hospitals across the country. The American Hospital Association (AHA) has exclusively endorsed LiveProcess as the choice for disaster readiness and incident command solutions for its more than 5,000 member hospitals.
The LiveProcess platform provides hospitals, other healthcare providers and public health agencies with the ability to evaluate and manage their own preparedness and state of readiness, as well as coordinate response with other entities, from small incidents through large-scale healthcare emergencies. Its broad and growing range of fully-integrated tools include Hazard Vulnerability Analyses (HVAs), an integrated Incident Command System (ICS), NIMS Compliance activities, Drills for Readiness and Compliance, a real-time Event Log, and Competency-Based Training capabilities.
