Healthcare providers today are shifting how they manage their IT departments. With the rise of EHRs and other IT systems, healthcare providers are finding themselves needing to outsource their data center solutions in order to maintain functionality. Colocation of some or all of healthcare’s IT needs alleviates IT burdens, reduces overhead and increases operating efficiencies.  And perhaps most importantly, it provides healthcare organizations with a solid solution for disaster recovery.

Disaster recovery colocation aids healthcare organizations in reducing costs while meeting HIPAA requirements which call for the backup of mission critical data in two diverse locations. For most healthcare providers, maintaining one reliable datacenter is costly enough. Adding a second redundant site in a diverse location can be exorbitant.

This whitepaper defines the importance of disaster recovery colocation. It includes nine critical criteria for selecting the ideal technology partner and geographical location.
