Online / Offsite EMR Data Backup Service
In response to the HIPAA rules regarding EMR backups and disaster recovery that our customers are required to meet, we are now offering an automated online backup service. This service will automatically backup your EMR and PM database backup file (and any other selected files) to our location every night. Used in conjunction with your regular, local backups, this offers a 'insurance policy' to assure data recovery in case of a disaster.
Information on Backups
The backup service is not based on the number of providers as in our software subscription. This is strictly based on the volume of data backed up. The following schedule lists out the associated charges with the service:
|Backup Software Setup Fee for 1 machine||$110 one time fee|
|1 Gigabyte Starter Account||$40 per month|
|Each Additional Gigabyte||$15 per month|
So as an example, if you needed 3 Gigabytes of storage, your monthly fee would be $40 + $15 + $15 = $70. Most of our users would not need more than the basic 1 GB starter account. After a year or two, as your data volume grows, this will probably change.
