In an EHR market rife with consolidation and replacement, healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) have adopted healthcare data archival solutions to retire legacy systems. While substantial benefits may be achieved through legacy system retirement and archival, additional risks may be introduced due to missed data sets including contextual audit trails, referenced data in ancillary systems, data change & version history, and infrequently used, invisible fields or other metadata.
I work with clients and our technical resources to Implement Vital Center Online Archival (VCO-A) into their organizations. This entails following project timelines, validating systems, educating resources on the product and the validation processes, ensuring issues are found and resolved, and overall ensuring a seamless implementation for the client.
