MediQuant Participates in Session 131

February 13, 2017 – Brecksville, OH – MediQuant, a pioneer and innovator in the active archiving of healthcare data, announced today the co-presentation of an educational session about Legacy Decommissioning at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition.


The session, a strategic perspective of legacy decommissioning led by Jon Russell, Senior Vice President and CIO of John Muir Health System and Tony Paparella, President of MediQuant, focuses on the real-life success factors and lessons learned in both planning and execution.


“For John Muir, like many healthcare systems, the strategic objective was clear. The biggest challenge however, really for anyone trying to break free from legacy systems, is getting the right people in the room in a timely manner and working out the realities of how best to execute,” said Paparella. “Often there are dozens, even hundreds of systems. People have day jobs. It’s critical to be able to prioritize and ensure you have the right technology to support the work ahead.”


Paparella also offered two highlights of the session content: ‘understanding how to maximize business engagement’ and ‘why use active archiving’ – two keys to a successful legacy retirement and data retention program.


The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference, hosted in Orlando, Florida, runs February 19th through February 23rd. Legacy Decommissioning: Planning, Savings & Meaningful Data goes live at 2:30 PM on Tuesday, February 21st in room W311A.


About MediQuant


MediQuant healthcare technology solutions focus on legacy system decommissioning and medical necessity compliance.


Legacy System Decommissioning


You invested millions in new enterprise technology, only to be weighed down by the anchors that are your legacy systems. They persist in parallel because valuable data is perilously trapped inside. As they live on, you suffer the costly drag on both budget and people.


Pull up anchor and propel your organization to freedom from legacy systems…without sacrificing access to the valuable data contained within. Eliminate legacy systems, related costs, and free your people to invest their time in higher value work.


Medical Necessity Compliance


Properly demonstrate medical necessity…get paid. Unfortunately, the rules for demonstrating medical necessity are dependent in large part on the clear understanding and application of a live, ever-changing enigma of data and information. Attempt to access and curate this content at your own peril. You’ll be trapped in the mud, managing denied claims.


Avoid the mud by proactively integrating accurate medical necessity content within your existing clinical and business workflows. Do it right the first time. Get paid the first time.
