2020 ACCE CE-IT Symposium
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) for CE-IT


Date: Monday, March 09, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Location: Hyatt Regency Orlando, Bayhill 21/22 (Convention Level, near the Skywalk Bridge that connects to the Orange County Convention Center)
9801 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
Description: American College of Clinical Engineering was formed to establish a standard of competence for Clinical Engineers, promote excellence in clinical engineering practice, and promote safe and effective application of science and technology in patient care. Today, safe and effective application of clinical systems requires integrity and availability of medical systems. 

In order to maintain services at a high level, business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) planning cannot be ignored. In this Symposium, we will have nationally and internationally recognized speakers and engineers who will address this shift in clinical engineering practice. We will cover topics such as BCDR best practices and regulation, as well as practical vetted processes for applying these principles in your organization. We will discuss alignment with supply chain as well as incident management and forensics for the worst-case scenario.
