Why is disaster recovery important in healthcare? Because patient lives depend on it. Although this answer may seem simple, healthcare organizations often overlook the importance of planning for the worst.

The reality is that patients' lives depend on healthcare data being available to their doctors. Lack of access to that information - because of a data loss or breach - could not only put a patient's health in jeopardy, but also exposes a health system to significant litigation risks, HIPAA penalties for non-compliance, and financial losses from the costly process of recovering data.

Cloud solutions can help. Download our Disaster Recovery Executive Brief to learn why the cloud is a compelling alternative to on-premise data centers.
