The new version, 2011 Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning Guide, is now available from DataCare Corporation online at:
Practical tips and best practices
This guide offers workers’ compensation managers practical tips and best practices to ensure business continuity. It provides guidance for establishing and monitoring systems that completely protect all medical data required to meet HIPAA requirements. In addition, it addresses the unique requirements that workers’ compensation programs must satisfy for timeliness and record retention. The guide includes an overview of best practices for designing a disaster recovery strategy. It outlines a practical plan for how an organization can recover and restore urgent functions after a disaster or other extended disruption. And has a checklist organizations can use to assess their own level of preparedness.
The guide is drawn from our years of experience supporting workers’ compensation teams. “The DataCare system allows us a superior method of collecting and storing our documents in a secure manner. By having redundancy of stored images, and the ability to access our documents via the Internet, we have further enhanced our ability to continue our operation in the event of a disaster. We feel that the DataCare system has allowed us to surpass our competitors in the area of document management and allows our clients to receive even better service and results,” said Judy Adlam, President & CEO of LWP Claims Solutions.
Mike Allen, Director of Business Development for DataCare says, “We developed our tools and services to help workers’ compensation organizations be more efficient. We developed this guide to help them maintain that efficiency, no matter what happens.” The 2011 Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning Guide is available for download, free of charge, from the DataCare Corporation website.
