NextGen EHR Data Migration and Archiving

NextGen Healthcare is the number four EHR vendor for ambulatory practices. Continued ambulatory EHR market growth is expected with an increase in the number of surgeries performed in outpatient settings versus hospitals, the growing number of chronic diseases and the rising geriatric population. Now, more than ever, there is a priority for seamless information flow and a focus on meeting regulatory requirements for record retention.

Physician groups, clinics and urgent care centers that are not equipped with the necessary infrastructure to process the skyrocketing volume of health data to coordinate care between clinicians, systems, facilities, and patients, must decide which EHRs they need to keep or if they will transition to a new system. With either path forward, Harmony Healthcare IT can help manage legacy data.

Our team can

  • Convert NextGen generated documents and screeners in HighEdit, including developmental screenings for children.
  • Ensure MIDMARK or Welch Allyn Spirometry images are accessible.
  • Include dental data including odontograms.
  • Customize the archive configuration around encounter records versus chronologically.

Ambulatory healthcare providers focused on coordinated care need a legacy data solution to support interoperability.

With the 21st Century Cures Act adding interoperability rules, healthcare providers need to be prepared to share health data upstream, downstream, with payers and with patients.

Support from a trusted legacy data vendor enables ambulatory providers to consolidate data silos and archive legacy data with a standard, repeatable process for data extraction, transformation, and load from a source legacy system to a target go-forward system.

Beyond a Systematic Process, Users also Appreciate Customizable Active Archive Features

  • Proprietary templating function. The cloud-based scalable storage platform allows flexible yet standardized visual record views customized per data source, data domain or data type (EMR, ERP, Accounting, HR, etc. with configurable search screen sorting per domain).

  • Single Sign-On. An important feature that ensures users maintain immediate access to legacy data from NextGen and any other vendor that supports SAML 2.0, AES, Crypto-js, or Open ID standards.

  • A/R wind down. Provides comprehensive re-billing and collections of account receivables wind down and ultimately record storage. HealthData AR Manager® equips the collector to refile 837 claims, view full transaction history, post payments, produce reports and comply with regulatory requirements.

  1. Look at the organization’s EHRs and review the Eight Tips for choosing the right EHR.
  2. Develop a legacy data management strategy and include an inventory of systems that need to be decommissioned with the data migrated to an archive.
  3. Choose an archive partner with the experience to meet your needs. This RFP template provides a framework to support that decision. These 10 Security Questions to Ask your Archive Vendor can protect you and your data.
