Why You Need to Archive Legacy Data When Switching EHRs

If you’re a healthcare administrator, chances are you’ve encountered challenges with your Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. Whether you feel as though you’re being charged an exorbitant rate, or you’re worried that your system is outdated, making the transition to a new EHR system can be intimidating.

This leaves many healthcare organizations with legacy EHRs that don’t support their growing database or paying for multiple systems unnecessary. But working with a company that specializes in healthcare data transfer will keep your organization safe and compliant while ensuring the transfer process is thorough and timely.

Understanding compliance and continuity

Many state and federal regulations require healthcare organizations to securely store their patient files for six years or longer. For the sake of your own operations, it’s important to keep patient files safe from cyber attacks or faulty systems.

That doesn’t mean your healthcare business has to remain with the current EHR provider. There is a way to cut ties with your old provider without placing your hospital or clinic at risk of excess fees or regulatory fines.
