Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed Disaster Recovery Solutions from Agility Recovery. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence. Following an extensive evaluation process of several business continuity solutions, the ReadySuite solution from Agility was selected for the exclusive AHA Endorsement.
Addressing Operational Excellence With Business Continuity
Communities rely on their local hospitals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When a disaster occurs, hospitals must continue to provide high quality health care. Patient-centered care requires facilities and support systems to continue to operate, which means having fully functioning equipment as well as fully accessible electronic records. Agility’s ReadySuite solution helps hospitals address these challenges. ReadySuite is an affordable, flexible, comprehensive collection of services that provides generator power, office space, technology and connectivity in the event of a disaster or disruption.
“As the health care delivery model becomes ever more reliant on electronic data and applications, restoring clinical services immediately following a disaster, including communication systems and access to patient information, is crucial for hospitals to maintain operational excellence,” said Anthony J. Burke, President and CEO of AHA Solutions, Inc. “We evaluated a number of disaster recovery solutions using our proprietary AHA Signature Due Diligence Process™; ultimately selecting ReadySuite from Agility because of its unparalleled success helping hospitals develop and implement detailed plans to recover staff, administrative functions, technology, power and connectivity should a disaster occur.”
Even a temporary hospital closure can have dramatic implication on not only the organization but the entire community. Through Agility’s ReadySuite solution and their continuity professionals, hospitals can be assured that they have immediate access to recovery assets – and the ability to quickly set a recovery plan into motion if necessary.
“Agility is proud to receive the distinguished AHA Endorsement for our ReadySuite solution,” said Bob Boyd, CEO of Agility. “We believe this exclusive endorsement speaks to our deep level of commitment to ensuring the health care delivery system remains intact in the event of a disaster. We look forward to partnering with the AHA as we continue to help hospitals minimize disruptions to patient care and maintain operational excellence.”
