With the year 2000 deadline fast approaching, hospitals, other health care providers and the medical device industry are scrambling to complete a process that in many cases was started too late. What may have once been a logistical issue is burgeoning into an overwhelming problem, compounded by the scarcity of time, rising costs, and a lack of programming resources and expertise.
As the Y2K issue moves far beyond a mere "technological" issue, American Health Consultants has published the Hospital Manager’s Y2K Crisis Manual, a compilation of resources for non-technical hospital managers. This 150-page reference manual includes information, in nontechnical language, on the problems your facility will face, the potential fixes, and the possible consequences, including:
• Will your computers and software work in 2000?
• What does Y2K mean for patient care?
• What will happen to your medical devices?
• How can you make sure your vendors are Y2K compliant?
• Are you at legal risk due to Y2K?
The Hospital Manager’s Y2K Crisis Manual is available now for $149. For more information on the Hospital Manager’s Y2K Crisis Manual, contact American Health Consultants customer service at (800) 688-2421 or www.ahcpub.com.
