In today’s volatile weather environment and uncertainty, protecting patient’s information is critical for maintaining quality patient care and complying with health care regulations -HIPAA. Many institutions do not have Disaster Recovery (DR) plans in place making it difficult if not impossible to restore or recapture this information easily. In addition often times this information is stored on media such as magnetic tape that can easily be corrupted. DR are defined as the processes, policies and procedures of restoring operations critical to the resumption of business after a natural or human induced disaster and in the event of a system downtime: as an example switching PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System). The plan should include a definition on Return to Operations (RTO) objectives, i.e. how fast can you get the data back to its initial state is the outcome of these plans for business continuance. This radio show will explore how to easily implement a DR plan and hear from a Dell customer on how they achieved a DR plan.
