Healthcare Data migration

You've chosen a new EHR system; now what do you do with the old data? You want to retire the legacy system, but need to retain end-user access to the vital detailed information from the old application.

Traditional options for clinical systems include

  • Full data conversion and new system implementation,
  • Delaying a go-live,
  • Running new and legacy systems in parallel.

Each of these approaches has its advantages and disadvantages. If managed incorrectly, clinical users do not have access to time critical information, or even worse, data is lost and IT costs skyrocket. Managing the legacy data effectively will help to maintain clinical operations, reduce costs and keep the healthcare provider compliant with Federal and State data retention requirements.

Traditional options for managing healthcare legacy data all have inherent and significant risks affecting cash flow, effective operation of the new system and the legally required retention of healthcare legacy data. These risks can be mitigated with the help of our proven team of professionals.

As an activity, it is often over-simplified, and even experienced managers have often overlooked its importance.Data migration in healthcare is a high-impact and time critical activity for any system transition.

Our highly experienced professionals have extensive experience in migrations to EPIC, GE, Mckesson, Siemens, Sunquest, and others that will facilitate your system transition.
