Use cloud and local backup for electronic health records

Article

Creating several layers of protection for your electronic data will help you breathe easy

A: Use the cloud. I recommend a local backup (the old tape/removable hard drive stored off-site idea that you've lived with in your practice management world), as well as a cloud-based backup service. A Web search will help you find vendors and options for comparing and evaluating different solutions. Don't forget to ask your EHR software vendor for a recommendation, too.
