The database of collected information is physically housed at the facility of Uniform Data
System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR)
. The company owns and manages its own servers and
NYSMSC data is stored in a MS SQL Server 2012 Database.
The technology is both efficient and stable, per the industry standard. Back-up schemes to
preserve the data, however, are more comprehensive and efficient to ensure no data loss.
NYSMSC data is backed up continuously during the day (every four hours) and backed up to
tape each night. UDSMR also provides improved disaster recovery in the unlikely circumstance
of data loss.
Carl Granger, MD, Executive Director of UDSMR is also an investigator with the NYSMSC site 01, Jacobs Neurological Institute.
