Acquisitions are a massive undertaking in any industry, but especially so in healthcare. The integration of new clinics and hospitals into an existing system requires many complex data considerations – what should be kept versus what can safely be archived or eliminated, all while remaining in compliance. Our southwestern healthcare client needed a timely solution to minimize data upkeep costs while providing the right patient history access to clinical staff members.
As the clinic’s application retirement partner, Concord was granted the rights to connect to the clinic’s EMR system and archive all data by utilizing IBM InfoSphere Optim. To further enrich the product, Concord configured our proprietary software, Accelerate® Data Viewer, to give key applications access to view prior visits, diagnoses, prescriptions, demographics, and other associated clinical data.
