Overview

With its own business and its customers’ wellness programs dependent on availability, Healthways needed a clear, documented and proven plan for maintaining always-on business.

Consultants from Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) assessed the impact of downtime on Healthways’ key business processes, systems, applications and data, then developed and implemented a best practice plan for business continuity, disaster recovery and compliance.

Results
  • A comprehensive, documented and proven business continuity plan
  • Quick, convenient, robust reporting
  • Stress-free fulfillment of customer audits and previews
  • Assured reputation and brand protection
  • Compliance with all required regulations and certifications
  • Cross-departmental engagement with continuity planning and recovery

Because of their responsiveness throughout the implementation process, and my entire relationship with Sungard AS, I’ve always felt like I was their only customer.
