The changing risks for Healthcare:  It may not be apparent to many of us, but the increased risks with the mandated electronic medical records and the continued increase in dependence on electronic systems to provide our healthcare are changing the face of risk management for organizations.  The integration of disaster recovery plans, operational continuity plans, emergency response plans and data restoration plans must be a priority.  The patient safety and evacuation or disaster preparedness and response (plans focused in most cases on helping other in a disaster) will not provide the needed level of protection or planning for these new risks.  Important questions to ask:

Frustration Free Continuity


We have been focused on this concept for the past two years and it looks to be paying dividends for our clients.  We are working on a paper to provide some more insights to everyone so keep watching this space.

Welcome to our web presence


A Going Concern is a different kind of consulting services firm.  We are focused on the things that matter in business when you want to remain in business even after something goes wrong.  


Our continuity services are targeted to keeping things simplified, yet complex enough to handle all the intricacies that you have within your company.  We have four main cores in our service delivery and you can utilize one or any combination of the four.


Customized planning is the only way most business ever develop a continuity program that works in an actual event.  You can visit the Ready.gov website (which we encourage for everyone to use when looking at a personal continuity plan), but it will not provide you all the things your business will need.  You can borrow a template from your friend’s business and it may work very well for that company, but just will not work for yours.  


If you aren’t sure, spend some time with us.  Call or email us and we’ll schedule a 30 minute consultation with one of our consultants.  It is free.  You can ask about planning for disasters, how to help manage risk, the factors that are needed to have a good technology recovery program – whatever is pressing for you.  We’ll provide you with answers, suggestions or a process that should be utilized to get the complete answers needed for your program.


Please, browse the site.  We’ll try and provide updates and new materials frequently.  Contact us.  We can help.

What about Ebola?


We had considered not talking about the topic since most of what we are hearing is hype and not focused on reality, but we’ve been asked to comment and we produced a short article for you.  You can get to it here.

How Far Away should my backup site be?


A tough question that is also not as simple as it sounds.  The answer depends on factors of independence.  Teach me more you ask?  Here’s a start.  A new article we just placed on the site.
