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.
