As digital healthcare evolves, so do the challenges of securing patient data to be compliant. HIPAA requires that practices taking patient X-rays keep those records for seven years and maintain a secure backup of that data in a geographically-removed location.

Employing RAID arrays and backing up to external hard drives are great methods to provide needed redundancy but neither meet HIPAA’s requirement. You may be backing up, but if the backup is stored at your location, you’re at risk of hefty fines if that data is lost.

The penalties for noncompliance are based on the level of negligence and can range from $100 to $50,000 per violation (or per record), with a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year for violations of an identical provision. Violations can also carry criminal charges that can result in jail time.
