Case Study - Disaster Recovery Planning: is your hospital up to snuff?

PROBLEM

Disaster recovery planning is like flossing – ignored until the pain becomes too great.  The topic is large, the effort poorly-defined, and the payoff for planning is distant, and in the future.  Disaster recovery (DR) planning is a task that is often scheduled for “someday”, when priorities and money will somehow become available.  Yes it is in the nature of computer systems to fail, so DR planning is not for an “if” but for a “when”.
