You’re embarking on an enterprise-wide transition. You’ve decided on a new vendor. All of your physicians and staff are on board. The timeline is projected. But with most internal staff working on towards implementing your new system, who will take care of the old to keep your organization up and running? How do you seamlessly transition? The answer may reside in a perfect pair: Legacy Application Support & Data Migration.
One health system in the Midwest had the same problem. Comprised of a network of more than 900 doctors and specialists, 17 hospitals, and 280+ physician clinics serving 9 regions and 88 communities, their organization-wide transition was an undertaking.

Consequently, the health system had committed much of its internal EHR staff to ensuring a successful and efficient transition to the EPIC system. As part of the transition strategy, the organization asked Galen Healthcare Solutions to provide expert-level support services for current Allscripts users while the health system’s internal EHR analysts focused on fulfilling personal and business requirements for the impending move to the EPIC system.
