The Challenge for Healthcare Leadership

With the growing concerns from natural disasters and cyber threats, America’s healthcare industry is at risk for disruption in care. As the world becomes more violent and malicious, it is imperative that institutions fight for resilience to keep their doors open and lights on. As healthcare leaders, it can be challenging to know where efforts should be focused with a limited budget and stretched resources. Effective planning, sufficient capital funding, and innovative solutions are required to not only support today’s challenges but prepare for future threats.

Why is Healthcare Resilience Such a Problem Today?

  • Too many healthcare institutions rely on outdated energy grids and utility services that have proven to fail communities time and time again.
  • Mother Nature has proven to be more prevalent and dominate in its destructive power for many communities unprepared for the unexpected and unexperienced.
  • Cyber threats have grown due to foreign State-sponsored efforts to disrupt the supply chain of goods and services.
  • Malware and Ransomware have proven to be a profitable business for hackers.
  • Many healthcare institutions lack the capital funding to adequately prepare for current and future dangers: cyber and physical threats, utility crises, supply chain disruptions, and workflow adaptability.
