More Cloud Challenges: Outsourced Storage and Content Management Technology

  • Data Security Risks
    • Agreement should be clear on dealing with security breeches in terms of who is responsible legally
    • Policies should be clear on reacting to a security breech
    • Security should include both data and database to protect PHI
  • Industry Standards Support
    • Proprietary solutions limit user’s ability to manage data, but may provide performance advantage
    • Use of industry standards assures that a user will be able to access data today and in the future
    • Industry standards provide flexibility in terms of interface to other applications
  • Migration & Survivability
    • Having a clear understanding of ownership and data in industry standards format will simplify migration should it be necessary
    • Should address migration from Out-Source vendor to another vendor/in-house, as well as migration from one user vendor to another
    • Should include survivability terms should the Out-Source company fail
