Dental Software Tip: A Backup System
Do you have a good backup system?
|With more and more of the practice’s critical data now in digital format, it is imperative that the practice properly protect and backup the data. HIPAA regulations can cripple a practice if the data is not encrypted, and antivirus software and firewalls are a good first step. Where many practices fall short is in their ability to recover from a disaster. It’s not enough to just have a good backup of the data. You also need a system in place to get you back up and running within minutes, even in the face of a disaster such as fire, flood, or theft. Make sure your IT company provides these services at a minimum.
