Data Backup and Retention
Data backup and retention is an important aspect of owning a dental practice. Your patient’s data is sought after by cyber thieves around the world. Patient data can also be compromised by being misplaced or lost in transit between you or your staff’s home and your practice. This makes it crucial for you to have a backup plan AND a process for handling your backup.
One of the worst experiences of a Doctor’s life is when they have to mail a letter to all of their patients telling them that the Doctor who they put their trust into lost their social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and phone numbers. Add on top of this all of the fines and costs you’ll be responsible for if and when one of your patients information is used fraudulently.
