Central Data Storage, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, provides fully supported managed online and off-site computer backup with rapid recovery dedicated to serving dental offices nationally. CDS uses proven encryption technologies that address applicable HIPAA/HITECH regulatory and industry-driven compliance initiatives.  Critical office data is encrypted prior to leaving the office, in flight to multiple data centers and at rest giving clients reliable secure off-site backup breeding recovery assurance.  As a managed solution CDS does the install and configuration of the software via remote entry.  While monitoring all aspects of the process the CDS team verifies the data logs, does integrity checks and is proactive in contacting the dental office when a problem arises.  Moreover, when data restoration is necessary it’s done rapidly by the CDS team to avoid office downtime.

  • Fines are now being levied by the Office of Civil Rights and include automatic fines and criminalpenalties.
