Clinical, financial and ERP data—ambulatory and in-patient—is securely accessible from anywhere, including physician offices.
Leverage a Scalable and Data-Source-Agnostic Solution
MediQuant has retired more than 120 million patient records and has years of experience working with different applications, requirements, facility types and datasets. Whether you’re decommissioning one application or 100, we have the scalability to meet your needs. What’s more, DataArk is agnostic to the data source, archiving ambulatory and in-patient datasets, and incorporates additional systems, datasets and facilities on an ongoing basis.
Intuitive and configurable, DataArk® software offers clinical, financial and ERP end users one common data structure and user interface. Designed to take in an unlimited number of new applications, it is both scalable and agnostic to the data source. DataArk provides a “retirement home” for legacy data and, as an active archive, allows end users to carry out day-to-day functions including:
- Access the retired system
- View information
- Run reports
- Add/edit data
- Perform billing functions
Transition with Ease
DataArk is a .NET application that resides in a Windows operating environment and uses MS SQL server as its database. With its common data structure, standardized GUI and EHR/EMR interface, DataArk requires as little as one hour of training for end users. Additionally, it offers complete configurability to maximize workflow. DataArk can be installed at your site or at a MediQuant data center.
Retain Data Integrity
DataArk software ensures familiar data types by migrating data rather than converting it. The software accommodates all data elements from your legacy systems, giving you the confidence that no data has been lost or altered in any way. The data your staff views is the same exact data that resided in the retired system.
DataArk® for Patient Accounting
Full data conversions into the new HIS are riddled with risk and often discouraged by software vendors, consultants and hospital staff. Balance-forward methodologies are incomplete, and keeping the old system enabled for minimal A/R management and archiving purposes is cost prohibitive. The DataArk® strategy provides a seamless transition. It lets you:
- Start “clean” with the new system
- Retire the legacy revenue-cycle application within months after go-live on the new system
- Manage legacy receivables from DataArk after retiring the legacy system
Sustain Cash Flow with Robust Functionality
No other archive matches the patient accounting functions available in DataArk. This includes retiring legacy billing applications while retaining the ability to bill accounts in DataArk. MediQuant clients can complete a diverse range of functions including:
- Fully post, bill and update balances on existing receivables
- Submit and edit claims
- Produce itemized statements
- Add notes
- Manage interfaces and agencies with other systems
- Produce complete ad hoc and standard reporting
- Defend audits

DataArk® for Clinical and EMR
When a healthcare facility retires its legacy system, physicians and clinical staff still need daily access to these records to deliver proper care to their patients. Additionally, there are workflow considerations in maintaining quick access to old records. DataArk® is an enterprise-wide solution, featuring a clinical module that optimizes workflow and provides easy-to-use screens for end users. It allows real-time access to records such as:
- Lab results
- Radiology reports
- Pharmacy/order history
- Discrete data elements and images
DataArk® for Administrative Data Sets
For ERP, human resources and similar data sets, DataArk® provides an active archive for complete payroll, time/attendance, benefits history, general ledger, accounts payable and more. It ensures that users retain compliance with federal and state data retention regulations and easy access to important business records. And, with complete customization capability, DataArk is flexible and user friendly.
DataArk® for Health Information Management
Health information management (HIM) requires the highest levels of responsiveness and accuracy. Historically, hospitals handled release of information (ROI) and audit requests by staffing an in-house ROI department or outsourcing with a service provider. DataArk® provides Release of Information functionality to meet the vital needs of HIM departments.

What is The DataArk®? In effect, DataArk®, acts as a "retirement home" for legacy data from retiring HIS, CIS, HR and other systems, thus eliminating the high support costs associated with your legacy system.
