Backup Data in the Gratis Journal of Biomedical Science

We are pleased to report the successful publication of data from an integrated system developed by us. Our Patient Tracker software was acknowledged in  the Gratis Journal of Biomedical Science,  Research article by Prof David  Thurnham, Valerie  Beeson and Dr Stephen  Kreitzman “Weight Loss Achieved by Overweight and Obese Subjects Entering the Lipotrim Weight Loss Programme Monitored by Pharmacists in England”

“…attend weekly for professional monitoring; recording of weight, reporting of any changes in their medical condition and obtaining enough formula for a subsequent week. At the time of the assessment reported in this paper, 57 (~3%) of the pharmacies’ records were kept on-line using Lipotrim® patient tracker secure software (Backup Data Ltd 15 Sable Close, Cambridge, CB1 9YX). These data are used by the pharmacists to monitor a subject’s progress and the on-line service permits the suppliers to assess the collective success of the pharmacy’s service in weight management.

Basic information about backup

At home, hardly anyone pays attention to the systematic archiving of data, and yet making copies of files on a second hard disk or burning them onto CD / DVD is a sufficient minimum.
In companies, the situation is much better, administrators generally are aware of the possibility of data loss due to disk failure or virus attack, but spending money on systems for archiving are still not given priority. You do not always need to buy expensive hardware or backup software. Relatively recently, growing availability of broadband has increased interest in storing all important data outside the home or business by using on-line backup systems.
Important information that is collected on the hard disks of computers, you must protect against accidental or intentional damage. It does this by creating so-called backup on removable media (CD/DVD, magnetic tape) or other storage. You can do this manually or automatically. In the second case dealt with the program installed on your system, which collects data for archiving and sends them in a fixed location. Because you don’t always have the appropriate hardware and software, some companies have proposed that they will keep on sending these data via the Internet.  Backup Management at www.backup-data.net
