A modern hospital alarm planning system is not only designed for MAN-V and MAN-E, but must also take into account all the risks involved in running the daily business in a hospital. Hospitals today are more than ever connected to the Internet and can be the target of cyber attacks, so they must also ensure that patient information remains secure.

However, modern hospital alarm and emergency planning must continue, especially for hospitals that fall under the KRITIS regulation. Emergency procedures for scenarios such as:

• Power outage
• Large-scale IT disruptions or cyber attacks
• Problems in drinking water supply
• Data breaches
• Interruptions in the logistics chain (e.g. surgical gowns or medication)
• Terror, Violence and Crime

must be considered, planned and practiced. The medical emergency is the daily business of every hospital. But there are other emergencies for which you should be prepared.

We support you in:

• Risk analysis and assessment in the form of business impact analyses specially tailored to hospitals
• Definition of emergency preparedness measures
• Establishment of a functioning special organisational structure (hospital operational management)
• Integration of all business units and service providers
• Compliance with KRITIS-V requirements
• Training courses, from MANV exercises to staff frame exercises in realistic and contemporary scenarios

Business Continuity Management is much more comprehensive and offers a framework in which hospital alarm and emergency planning can be perfectly integrated. Preventive measures are derived and implemented through structured business impact and risk analysis. Prevention also includes the development of coordinated training concepts for personnel from the gatekeeper to the hospital director.

A user-friendly emergency manual provides clear assistance in emergencies and crises. To date, the quality of KAEP can only be audited in part. An audit according to ISO 22301 can close this gap. Checks and updates are carried out regularly. The guidelines help to maintain the BCM and give it a framework.

In summary, it is clear from our point of view: Companies, especially those that fall under the KRITIS regulation and hospitals have more in common than they do in differences in business continuity management
