Database Backup and Recovery an entity of type: FeatureClassified

Provide for the ability to backup and recover the EHR system. @en
To enable the preservation of the EHR database and it's data, functionality needs to be present to record a copy of the database and it's contents to offline media as well as the recovery of the system from a backup copy and resumption of normal system operation. The backup must preserve both data as well as database structure and definition information sufficient to recover a complete functional EHR system. Database components may include, but not be limited to application data, security credentials, log/audit files, and programs; ultimately all EHR components necessary to provide a full and complete operating environment. Finally, the backup must be capable of being used during recovery processing to restore an exact copy of the EHR system as of a particular instant in time. This is a requirement to be able to preserve logical consistency of information within the recovered EHR system.In providing for this capability the system may Include multiple backup, and/or redundancy solutions such as fail-over architecture, database journaling, transaction processing, etc.The backup and recovery function must address both physical system failure (i.e. failure of EHR system hardware) as well as logical system failure (e.g., database corruption).To support the requirement that the EHR system be available whenever it is needed within the design parameters of the system and provide reliability and redundancy of the EHR database and it's data, the backup function shall not impact user functionality or appreciably impact user performance.The backup function may include features which permit multiple processes and technologies to perform it's task. This may include multiple backup technologies such as tape, disk, cloud, etc. Also, multiple architectures such as redundancy, online, near-line and off-line media. @en
