Guide to information backup in general practice
Backing up business-critical information is a requirement in order for a general practice to achieve accreditation. It is recommended that practices have a reliable information backup system to support timely access to business and clinical information. In order to meet accreditation and for purposes of business continuity, ensure your practice backup process:
• is checked at regular intervals (ie daily), including the ability to recover the data
• is consistent with the business-continuity plan your practice has developed, tested and documented
• details how and in which offsite locations information is stored.
The RACGP’s Guide to information backup in general practice provides recommendations, practical advice and checklists, to support general practices achieve secure and reliable information backup and data recovery processes.
