Healthcare IT : Electronic Medical Records Backup and Recovery

Electronic medical records (EMR) back up, recovery, and data retention requirements are very backbone of HIPAA regulations.

Electronic medical records (EMR) back up, recovery, and data retention requirements are very backbone of HIPAA regulations. It's mission critical for healthcare providers to maintain proper back-up systems, access reliable recovery, and retain historical data properly - all within a secure environment.

HIPAA requires that sensitive health data be encrypted and stored in specific, tightly-regulated ways. So not only are medical practices, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers producing more and more electronic records at an exponential rate, all of those files have to be stored indefinitely, in a specific manner, and most importantly, be recoverable.

Small Practices Must Look to Managed Services

Yet the resources available to large hospitals and other healthcare organizations are out of reach for most small family practices. In most cases, they won't have appropriate internal IT resources and won't have the budget for large-scale EMR systems. This is the target area where managed services providers will be able to make the best inroads.
