The effects of decoherence on the transfer and storage of coherent quantum states in hybrid systems are studied within the Caldeira-Leggett approach. In general, we find that a high transfer fidelity can be achieved even if the decoherence time is less than an order of magnitude larger than the transfer time, which is approximately half a Rabi period and determined by the qubit-qubit coupling strength. Finally, we apply our results to assess the feasibility of a hybrid quantum memory system, comprised of the hyperfine qubit states of an ultracold atomic Bose-Einstein condensate and the flux qubit of a SQUID.
