We’ve recently fielded a number of inquiries from community health centers and rural health clinics about the archival of data from Greenway Health’s SuccessEHS, a full electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) system. According to the users we’re hearing from, a plan must be put in place to migrate from SuccessEHS by September 30, 2019.This was confirmed when Greenway Health responded to an inquiry from a popular healthcare IT website.According to a Greenway Health associate, thorough analysis was done on the SuccessEHS platform. After taking all things into consideration, it was decided that the best thing to do was to “move up the platform’s end-of-life date and partner with them to transition to our flagship platform, Intergy.”Although there are varying dates on when customers will need to migrate, all Success EHS customers who want to be a part of the incentive programs for the 2019 reporting period must do so no later than September 30, 2019. For those not planning on participating in a government incentive program, the end date in which migration must be done by is December 31, 2019.As you strategize around your data management plan and how to most efficiently handle the decommissioning of SuccessEHS, keep in mind that legacy data will also need to be addressed. Leaving an old system up and running as read only is a security risk that leaves your PHI vulnerable and open to data breaches.
