Electronic Medical Records (EMR) can be extremely beneficial to a practice since all medical records are stored on a hard drive or in the cloud, instead of in paper format which can easily be damaged or lost. However, computers are not impervious to damage either. In order to protect your EMR, maintain security of the medical records, and to comply with HIPAA regulations, your EMR files must be securely backed up daily. Specifically, HIPAA backup regulations demand a backup and recovery plan at an offsite location in case of disaster.
