Usability of image and index data over time.
Maintaining access to and usability of electronic records requires the ability to process images and indexes both on the computer system on which they were created and on their replacement computer systems without loss of information for the full retention period approved for that record. Ensuring the readability of electronic records over time requires the maintenance of proper environmental conditions, periodic recopying, and strategies to preserve data by migration from one generation of technology to another through a commitment to open architecture.
