EHR Satisfaction Down, EHR Replacements Up, Archiving on Deck…


A recently published report from IDC Health Insights cites that nearly 60% of the 212 PCP and specialist providers surveyed are very dissatisfied, dissatisfied, or neutral about their ambulatory EHRs. The primary reason for the dissatisfaction across the over 25 different EHR products used was loss of productivity.

As a result, EHR replacements — nationwide — are on the rise.

As technology evolves in healthcare, Directors of IS are routinely replacing old technology with new.  With the cost and complexity of data conversions, complete patient records from a legacy application are not typically ported over to the new software.  This can result in a collection of read-only systems that carry with them a price tag for service and support, a burden of keeping software patched and users trained as well as a technical risk as infrastructures age.

Health Data Archiver is an easy-to-use, vendor-neutral repository that helps reduce the costs of legacy system maintenance and bypass the complexity of conversions.
