MEDITECH EHR Data Migration & Archiving

MEDITECH is the third most popular electronic health record (EHR) vendor in the U.S. with just under 15% market share. MEDITECH’s newest release, Expanse, earned the best Overall Performance score in a recent KLAS Research report that examined feedback from hospitals with 250 beds or less about their patient accounting solutions. As MEDITECH users decide whether to upgrade to Expanse or to transition to a different EHR altogether, Harmony Healthcare IT can help manage the legacy data.


Harmony Healthcare IT has in-depth experience with MEDITECH — including Magic, Client Server and V6 Expanse — as well as associated data types and related third-party software. Our legacy data management solutions support MEDITECH data migration and other EHRs.

In most cases, key clinical data is converted to a new go-forward system. We help with that data conversion as well as with managing the rest of the data in HealthData Platform™.

Getting started with an active MEDITECH archive

After choosing MEDITECH as the go-forward EMR system, or after an upgrade to a newer version, it is time for an archiving strategy. The strategy should include a system inventory, financial forecast and a system prioritization plan for decommissioning legacy servers and archiving the data.

An important early step is choosing an archiving partner with the experience to successfully collaborate on your legacy data management projects. This RFP template can help you review vendors so you choose the data migration and archiving partner that best meets your needs.

MEDITECH data archiving delivers on three main objectives:

There are many cost, security, and accessibility benefits for including an active archive in your data management plans.

  1. Data Consolidation

    Consolidate numerous legacy data silos into a secure archive, accessible by users via Single Sign-On from the go-forward EHR (MEDITECH, or other systems).

  2. Cost Savings

    Reduce costs by decommissioning legacy servers and alleviating other cost burdens (technical, staff, infrastructure, maintenance, etc.).

  3. Compliance

    Comply with record retention mandates and interoperability requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act.
