Hospital Decommissions Ambulatory EHR and Retains Access to the RIGHT Data
A public teaching hospital on the west coast planned to decommission an ambulatory EHR following their Epic implementation by integrating the legacy clinical data directly into Epic.
Keep the right data securely accessible, at a low cost, while freeing the organization from a legacy system.
After executing the plan, only part of the required Continuity of Care Documents (CCD) data made into Epic. Additionally, the data did not transition into a usable format. While the team scrambled to solve, internal options were a non-starter because of constraints on resources and knowledge in meeting a unique regulatory requirement to limit search functionality for incarcerated persons.
Running out of time and short on bandwidth, the stakeholders selected MediQuant to achieve the original objective using the DataArk active archiving software and implementation roadmap. A critical decision for implementation was bringing physician leadership to the table for the entire process.
- The legacy system is gone along with the excessive cost, while physicians preserved access to important clinical data (lab, immunization history, order history).
- Data is secure and accessible from any location, including physician offices.
- Users are pleased with advanced customization functionality (including the design of a flow sheet to track adult immunizations, previously lacking in their records, and the rearrangement of existing flow sheets to better suit their needs).
