There are many considerations when developing a means of patient data management. One of them is the ability to store data. Using an unlimited online backup service makes data management easier and UnisonBDR can help.
Unlimited File Backup
Data Storage Concerns
File sizes in the medical industry can be so large that storage is challenging. Hospitals, dental offices and other facilities can use their own servers and IT departments, but it can be more cost-effective to use an external data storage service. At UnisonBDR, we promise that you will have enough storage space so you can be assured of HIPAA compliance without worry.
Unlimited Online Backup
Medical records can contain large files, including not only basic patient information, lab results and visit summaries, but also sizable files such as dental X-rays, MRIs and CT scans. Hospitals and medical practitioners cannot risk running out of storage space. Unlimited file storage facilitates HIPAA compliance and makes it easier to give care, since patient data is always available. UnisonBDR provides unlimited online backup for the following reasons:
- There is no risk of losing data.
- Unlimited versions of each file can be saved, so physicians can access them if needed.
- Frequent backups can be performed so that data are accessible after power failures and other disasters that would otherwise lead to data loss.
- Healthcare providers can focus on providing care.
Benefits of Cloud Storage
Client servers can do the trick, but cloud storage with UnisonBDR has more benefits.
- You don’t need bulky and expensive on-site or off-site hardware to act as the server.
- Our technical support can provide remote assistance.
- IT maintenance is our responsibility; not your worry.
- It enables records to be accessed remotely without being stored on mobile devices, which are frowned on by HIPAA.
- Storage services can offer usage-based fees, so medical practices do not need to pay extra.
File Sharing and Collaboration in the Cloud with HIPAA Compliance
A major benefit of unlimited online backup is the ability for physicians to remotely collaborate. For example, a primary care physician may discuss an oral concern and some mouth x-rays with a patient and their dentist without the three individuals needing to be in the same physical location. UnisonBDR helps you communicate when needed, staying HIPAA compliant.
As the Information Age progresses and data security breaches are regularly in the news, the healthcare industry needs to respond. Data storage with unlimited online backup ensures that data is always available. This method of patient data management is HIPAA and HITECH compliant with UnisonBDR.
To comply with HIPAA criteria, all patient data related to past and current medical conditions, treatment and billing must remain private. To demonstrate Stage 1 and Stage 2 of meaningful use and qualify for CMS reimbursements under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), medical facilities and practitioners must maintain electronic health records (EHR). Patients need to have access to their records in most circumstances. UnisonBDR understands current HIPAA/HITECH requirements so you can spend time managing your medical practice and not your data.
What Our Customers Say
“UnisonBDR managed online computer backup was quick, efficient, and thoroughly easy to use. It was truly as easy as a phone call and the staff was able to assist when a problem arose. I had the misfortune of having a total loss of data on my server, but the data was totally restored on my new server exactly as it had been up to the moment of the crash, no corruption or lost data. What a relief!”
