Data Protection and Security

Data Protection and Security

P & P Data Systems provides fully automated data back-up and recovery for Ontario physicians and their patients. We protect some of Ontario’s most critical and sensitive data with strength and integrity so you can always be assured that your patient’s data is 100% protected. We make protecting your data our top priority.

P & P Data Systems uses cloud-based data protection which has proven its capabilities time and time again. Cloud-based data protection has been recognized as superior to traditional tape-based back-up solutions because of its efficiency, both to manage and to access in a disaster situation. With an automated, cloud-based back-up disaster recovery plan in place, clinics can ensure they will meet their desired recovery point and recovery time objectives, often without any disruptions to the clinical operations at all. The fully managed back-ups allow your IT staff to focus their efforts elsewhere.

P & P Data Systems  provides data storage and back-ups for clinics and physicians in Ontario to protect their crucial patient data. By providing four different tiers that include progressive amounts of data, clinics can ensure they are using only what they need.

Fully Managed Back-ups

80% of downtime and data loss is caused by human error. Even the best clinical IT specialist makes the occasional mistake. But, with P & P’s fully managed and fully automated back-ups, human error is no longer an issue. Because it is fully managed, automated, and monitored by P & P staff. Everything is taken care of for you.

Continuous Back-up

Every 15 minutes, our security software scans your data and uploads your changes to the back-up server. This means that, in the event of a data disaster, you will lose, at the most, 15 minutes of data. This is absolutely crucial for getting your clinic back up and running. A 15 minute loss is far superior to other data back-up methods, which often only back-up once or twice a day.

Automated Recovery

In the event of data loss, P & P is right there with a back-up for recovery. Very little user interaction is necessary in the recovery process. Through the web portal, your IT manager can start the recovery process, then sit back and watch even the most complex clinical environment be restored in very little time. Even in the middle of a data disaster, your clinic can be back to business-as-usual in no time.

Long-Term Offsite Data Retention

Clinics have very specific data retention needs. Because the government requires you to keep your patients medical records for a set period of time, P & P may be the perfect choice. With plenty of storage in our Ontario-based data centres, you can comply with the governments requirements without filling storage lockers full of paper charts or spending a fortune on back-up servers just to store old files.

Web Portal Monitoring

P & P’s web portal provides detailed information on your back-ups including data storage and usage, back-up details, and recovery information. All of this information is accessible from anywhere through a web browser. This allows you to check up on your data at any time, to allow you complete confidence in the safety of your critical information.
