Webinar: Triaging Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Today

In September, more than 200 healthcare professionals responded to a HIPAA Journal request to participate in an Emergency Preparedness and Security in Healthcare survey by Rave Mobile Security.

The study identified the biggest safety concerns in healthcare, the most common types of emergencies experienced by healthcare providers over the past two years, and the methods used by healthcare providers to communicate with employees during those emergency situations.

Rave Mobile Security Chief Operating Officer, Todd Miller, will be discussing the key findings of the survey in a free webinar – Triaging Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Today – taking place on Thursday October 25 (2pm-3pm ET).
The expert panel will feature:
