During the past several years, three hospitals in the northeast were acquired by a larger hospital network. When each of the three hospitals was acquired, it switched from its existing EHR to Epic.
Although the hospitals adopted the network’s standard EHR system, they still had patient and, in some cases, accounting and other information on their original systems.
This case study describes how during a four-year period, FDI has archived more than 30 terabytes of data from more than a dozen legacy systems for the three hospitals, helping them:
- Achieve millions of dollars in savings,
- Safeguard historical patient and other information, and
- Make it easier for clinicians and H.I.M. users to access historical information.
