6 Best Practices for Patient Data Disaster Recovery

The wonders of technology have created a greater peace of mind for many medical offices and hospitals by providing a way to easily, effectively, and safely store and retrieve digital records. Nothing demonstrates this clearer than when a facility experiences an event that damages or destroys imaging and record-keeping equipment. As "set-it-and-forget-it" as backup and recovery technology can seem, these systems still require some proactive treatment.

Whether the event in question is disastrous for a single laptop (dropped on a hard floor) or for dozens of pieces of equipment across a network (flooding in your building's first couple of floors), the following are some industry best practices to help make sure that restoring access to your patient data can be quick and easy, freeing you to respond to the other urgencies that arise in a disaster recovery scenario.
