Altera & Veradigm (formerly Allscripts) EHR Data Migration & Archiving

Veradigm (formerly Allscripts Healthcare Solutions) rounds out the top 5 of the more than 500 ambulatory EHR vendors in the healthcare market. In 2022, Allscripts sold its hospital and large physician practice business segment that included Sunrise, Paragon, TouchWorks, Opal and dbMotion solutions to N. Harris Computer Corporation, which rebranded them under its Altera Digital Health business unit. The company rebranded with the solutions it kept and now is called Veradigm.

With industry consolidation and shifting, users will decide which EHRs they need to keep or if they will transition to a new system. With either scenario, Harmony Healthcare IT can help manage legacy data.

Former Allscripts Solutions Require Agility with Legacy Data

The legacy Allscripts product offering includes an array of solutions including clinical EHRs, financial/operations, patient engagement, analytics, and technical services. Healthcare providers who need to move legacy data to or from a Veradigm solution need a vendor that can support the extraction, migration, conversion, and integration required.

Current Veradigm solutions include:

  • Allscripts PM
  • Enterprise Resource Planning
  • FollowMyHealth
  • Melissa Data
  • Opargo
  • Payerpath
  • Practice Fusion
  • Professional EHR
  • Allscripts RCMS
  • Veradigm

Current Altera solutions include:

  • Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM)
  • Sunrise Financial Manager (SFM)
  • Sunrise Community Care
  • Paragon
  • TouchWorks EHR
  • Care Director
  • Opal
  • dbMotion

100+ Allscripts Completed Projects Provides an Experienced Partner

The Harmony Healthcare IT team brings solid experience with 100+ Allscripts projects to date. We are deeply familiar with Sunrise Clinical Manager, Paragon, TouchWorks, and the rest of Allscripts’ former solutions. Our legacy data management solutions support data migration to and from the former Allscripts solutions.

In most cases, key clinical data is converted to the new go-forward system. We help with that data conversion and then manage the rest of the data in HealthData PlatformTM.

We support server or cloud-based applications.

We are familiar with the specific questions from Allscripts users such as: How will they continue to access TouchWorks’ ChartViewer?

Data Agility Supports Long Term Access Wherever, Whenever Needed

With the 21st Century Cures Act adding enforceable rules to guide interoperability, integration is as important as ever. Harmony Healthcare IT developers work collaboratively with APIs of leading health IT vendors to ensure the secure exchange or accessibility to data within the healthcare ecosystem.

Single Sign-On. An important feature in the active archive ensures users maintain immediate access to legacy data. With Single Sign-On, users seamlessly authenticate, in patient-context, from most major EMR brands (e.g., Epic®, Cerner®, Veradigm®, Allscripts® and athenahealth®) to HealthData Archiver™. Oauth/OpenID, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) and other standards are supported.

Key Steps for Starting an Active Archive Project

  1. Document an archiving strategy to identify and prioritize which systems need to be decommissioned with data migrated to an archive.

  2. Choose an archive partner with the experience to fully meet your legacy data management needs. This RFP template provides a framework to support that decision.

Vital Considerations about Legacy Applications

Legacy Data Decision Drivers: Security and Cost Savings

A CIO survey showed top drivers for data archiving are reported as security and cost savings. With 94 percent of organizations with legacy applications in current operations, it is not surprising that more than three quarters (77 percent) of CIOs surveyed list application rationalization as a medium to high priority.
