Whether you’re decommissioning one application or doing an EMR conversion of several systems, we have the scalability to meet your needs. What’s more, our DataArk archiving solution is agnostic to the data source, archiving ambulatory and clinical datasets, and incorporating additional systems, datasets and facilities as required in the future.
Features of Our DataArk Active Legacy Data Archive
Intuitive and configurable, MediQuant’s DataArk archiving 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, which include:
- Accessing the data from the retired system
- Viewing information
- Running reports
- Adding and editing data
- Performing 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. It can be installed at your site or at a MediQuant data center.
Additionally, our software offers complete configurability to optimize workflow. With its common data structure, standardized GUI and EHR/EMR interface, DataArk requires as little as one hour of training for end users.
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 confidence that no data has been lost or altered in any way. The data viewed in DataArk 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, however, avoids these pitfalls and provides a seamless transition. It allows you to:
- Start “clean” with the new system
- Retire the legacy 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. These functions include retiring legacy billing applications while retaining the ability to manage your receivables.
Using our software, MediQuant clients can complete a diverse range of functions including the ability to:
- Fully post, bill and update balances on existing receivables
- Submit and edit claims
- Add notes
- Manage agencies and interfaces with other systems
- Produce itemized statements
- Produce complete ad hoc and standard reports
- Defend audits

DataArk for Clinical Data
When a healthcare facility retires its legacy systems, 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:
- Pharmacy/order histories
- Radiology reports
- Lab results
- Discrete data elements and images
To learn more about how the DataArk clinical archive keeps your clinical records available to users across the enterprise after a new EMR implementation, consult our team.
DataArk for ERP
For ERP, human resources and similar data sets, DataArk provides an active archive for payroll, time/attendance, benefits history, general ledger, accounts payable and more.
Our software ensures that users retain compliance with federal and state data retention regulations and provides easy access to important business records. Fully configurable, DataArk is highly flexible and user friendly.

DataArk for Health Information Management
Health information management (HIM) requires the highest levels of responsiveness and accuracy. Historically, hospitals handle 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. Contact our team to find out more about how DataArk helps simplify HIM.
