Doctors, dentists, podiatrists,
physical therapists, chiropractors and other
health professionals have unique needs when
it comes to their data. Using
the latest practice management software,
many health professionals have vital data
such as their accounts receivable, appointment
book and patient data on their computer.
Health professionals often rely more
on their computer system than on the actual
patient chart. Losing even a few days of
data can be a disaster, let alone losing
a large portion of computer records.
Also, health professionals rightly spend
the bulk of their time tending to their
patients, and often are lax in protecting
the data that runs their practice. Many
health professionals do a poor job of backing
up their data each day, and even
fewer take a copy of their data offsite
each day. Also, even those who take a copy
of their data home each day, do not take
into account their days off, vacations and
the like when their backup system falls
can easily be set to produce a daily offsite
backup without any user intervention. A
health professional can set
to backup offsite in the middle of each
night, eliminating the need to take home
a tape or disk each day.

a user will be notified if their data backups

professional to spend their time treating
their patients, rather than worrying about
their computer system.
