To a dental practice, as well as many other practices and workplaces, losing data is likely the worst kind of loss, because without data, it has nothing. You need your data to serve your patients, manage your staff and oversee your practice.

Data loss can have multiple serious implications, from loss of financial productivity, unrecoverable digital assets, to loss of patients’ information and confidence, and more.

We live in an era where data rules; the fact that it can be lost so easily should be enough to encourage practices to take steps to protect it. Yet, many people still think data backup is not important – until they need it, that is.

Data loss statistics show quite a horror picture.

  • 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more during a disaster, filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster (National Archives & Records Administration in Washington).
  •  

  • 43% of companies that suffer catastrophic data loss never reopen, and 51% close within two years (University of Texas) – they are simply unable to recover the assets, including customer data, onsite financial documents, application files, etc.
  •  

  • More than half of companies that suffer from catastrophic data loss as a result of a natural disaster will eventually close.
  •  

  • A study by the Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council found that 20% of the surveyed companies had suffered $50,000 to $5 million dollars in downtime losses. If your data is ever lost, stolen or damaged, your practice may end up with considerable downtime.

 
The good news is you don’t need to learn the hard way. To ensure you are not faced with a nightmare road of dealing with lost productivity, lost sales, lost records, work with an expert technology consulting firm that offers reliable IT solutions, such as data backups.
