What is the Health IT industry doing to address inconsistent (and often ambiguous) standards on data retention? We've long seen the 'permanent' tag associated with much of the information we process in this industry, yet there exists so much waste (keeping tape media no longer supported by existing tape silos at costly offsite facilities) as a result. How can IT leverage its practical knowledge of this area (and therefore newer VTL platforms / shorter data retention windows) against non-technical echelons (e.g. HR, Legal) who simply enforce existing outdated dictums in this realm?
