ReadyOp Advantages for Hospitals

ReadyOp is used by hospitals, corporations, schools, first responders and government agencies nationwide at the federal, state and local levels. These clients all have the same issue – the efficient and effective way to manage and report daily operations as well as the ability to handle incidents and adverse situations. ReadyOp is the single platform that provides planning, daily operations, and incident response, all consolidated in a single, easy to learn and easy to use program. ReadyOp is a web-based, software as a service (SAAS), program that requires no new or on-site hardware or programming.


Hospitals, coalitions and healthcare agencies use ReadyOp as a web-based platform that provides a single, secure location accessible 24/7 from any location to consolidate plans, rosters, locations, assets, forms and more. Simple icons provide for immediate communication via text, call, email, alerts and unified notification with individuals, groups or teams.

Forms can be shared with mobile devices for immediate situational awareness. Each organization has its own secure site to plan and to use for daily operations and for response to incidents. Plans and operations can be built and stored securely in ReadyOp on a by location, region and systemwide basis.

Assets can be listed along with their location, person to contact and other information that may be needed. Diagrams, charts, maps, pictures, report forms and other documentation can be securely stored yet immediately available from any location. ReadyOp also provides efficient planning and response for response to disasters and for continuity of operations (COOP) and recovery. ReadyOp is the COOP platform for multiple organizations including many federal agencies.
