This exciting and fully comprehensive new text tackles the issue of BCM from both a theoretical and empirical perspective.

The text: *outlines a clear methodology for guiding the development of continuity plans *offers an alternative, business-based perspective to the dominant disaster recovery and traditional contingency planning viewpoints *provides a clear definition of BCM and 'best practice' from a business perspective *includes analysis of the challenges encountered when implementing BCM *Features illustrative case material.

Book Description :

This book will examine business continuity planning as adapted to encompass the requirements of The Health Care Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, or HIPAA. We will examine the typical business continuity planning model and highlight how the special requirements of HIPAA have shifted the emphasis. The layout of this book was designed to afford assistance, hints, and templates to the person or team charged with the task of implementing business continuity planning into a healthcare organization.You will notice that this book does not address Emergency Management (building evacuations and other immediate response procedures), which is outside the scope of the HIPAA regulations.Upon reading and re-reading the HIPAA regulations and the ?Comments and Responses? in the federal register, it becomes quite evident that the ?Contingency Plan? (read Business Continuity Plan) requirements were written by those looking to protect health information data. That being said, many of the examples that I use in this book relate to information technology and disaster recovery (recovery of computer capabilities). What is also important, and that I try to emphasize throughout the book, is that recovering the computer systems of a health care organization will not necessarily get it operational again after a disaster; a multitude of other production and operational components must be present in order to deliver services and products to customers/patients. Where appropriate, I have identified procedures and strategies that are unique to healthcare provider organizations. If not so indicated, it can be assumed that I am referring to healthcare organizations in general.The audience for whom I have designed this book are the people who are responsible for implementing a business continuity plan in a healthcare organization that comes under the scope of the HIPAA regulations. At first reading, the book may appear to be an exact template to be used to design a business continuity plan. What I hope that you will get out of the book (perhaps on a reread once you are into the planning project) is that this is a pencil outline on a canvas and that your insights and knowledge of your healthcare organization will add the color that will make it a masterpiece.What you will notice in this book is that we present an approach that is similar to traditional business continuity planning. This is done purposefully. The basic business continuity planning model looks to protect and/or recover all critical components of production. This model assumes an industry-specific nature not by changing the model itself, but by placing greater emphasis on the protection and recovery of those production resources that characterize that industry. In our view, ?thinking outside the box? is only required if the box was ill-conceived in the first place. Accordingly, this book can also be appropriate for many non-healthcare organizations.This book will include the special precautions and procedures that address the unique concerns of HIPAA, but it will present them along with the other business components in order to emphasis the need to take a holistic approach when constructing and maintaining a business continuity plan.

Book Description :

You have the knowledge and skill to create a workable Business Continuity Management (BCM) program – but too often, your projects are stalled while you attempt to get the right information from the right person. Rachelle Loyear experienced these struggles for years before she successfully revamped and reinvented her company’s BCM program. In The Manager’s Guide to Simple, Strategic, Service-Oriented Business Continuity, she takes you through the practical steps to get your program back on track. Rachelle Loyear understands your situation well. Her challenge was to manage BCM in a large enterprise that required hundreds of BC plans to be created and updated. The frustrating reality she faced was that subject matter experts in various departments held the critical information she needed, but few were willing to write their parts of the plan. She tried and failed using all the usual methods to educate and motivate – and even threaten – departments to meet her deadlines. Finally, she decided there had to be a better way. The result was an incredibly successful BCM program that was adopted by BCM managers in other companies. She calls it “The Three S’s of BCM Success,” which can be summarized as: Simple – Strategic – Service-Oriented. Loyear’s approach is easy and intuitive, considering the BCM discipline from the point of view of the people in your organization who are tasked to work with you on building the plans and program. She found that most people prefer: Simple solutions when they are faced with something new and different. Strategic use of their time, making their efforts pay off. Service to be provided, lightening their part of the load while still meeting all the basic requirements. These tactics explain why the 3S program works. It helps you, it helps your program, and it helps your program partners. Loyear says, “If you follow the ‘Three S’ philosophy, the number of plans you need to document will be fewer, and the plans will be simpler and easier to produce. I’ve seen this method succeed repeatedly when the traditional method of handing a business leader a form to fill out or a piece of software to use has failed to produce quality plans in a timely manner.” In The Manager’s Guide to Simple, Strategic, Sevice-Oriented Business Continuity, Loyear shows you how to: Completely change your approach to the problems of “BCM buy-in.” Find new ways to engage and support your BCM program partners and subject matter experts. Develop easier-to-use policies, procedures, and plans. Improve your overall relationships with everyone involved in your BCM program. Craft a program that works around the roadblocks rather than running headlong into them.
