Assessment Data Backup

Question: There have been situations where providers have lost their database causing undue time spent restoring data. Who is responsible for backing up this data?

Answer: It is the responsibility of the providers (Nursing Facilities, Home Health Agencies, IRF PAI and Swing Bed) to have a regular back up plan for all local assessment data.

If you need assistance with the back up of your data or have questions with regard to this issue, contact the QTSO Help Desk for assistance (help@qtso.com).
