Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity in a #HealthcareIT Cloud: Outsourced Storage Technology Considerations

Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

  • Disaster Recovery
    • Out-Sourced Service must comply with HIPAA April 2005 regulation, which states
      • Facility must be able to deliver a copy of patient electronic records within 30 days of request
      • Facility must have a Disaster Recover plan and test it periodically
  • Different policies on distance separating redundant copies – Out-sourced service must be able to comply
  • Business Continuity
    • Out-Sourced Service must be capable of providing access to stored information independent of facility’s applications for Business Continuity
    • Could be client hosted application or 3rd party
