Healthcare data migration is a process that can be both expensive and time-consuming. That’s why it’s crucial to make sure you’re not making any of the common mistakes people often make when doing healthcare data migration. Here are 3 mistakes to avoid:
Expecting Your Old System Will Do Everything for You
You need to plan ahead by developing a thorough list of requirements, including how long it should take for each task, what business applications must be supported after the move and who needs access to which files.
Assuming All Systems Are Created Equal
The most important consideration in choosing a new system is seeing what features work best with your current infrastructure and workflow processes. The final decision should be based on which system will make the migration as seamless and easy for you, your staff, and any vendors or partners involved. Don’t focus just on price – consider what value a product delivers in terms of features that meet your needs.
Ignoring Security of Data in Transfer
When you’re considering a new system, ask about how the data is physically transferred. You want to know whether the vendor uses “secure-r” technology that ensures data in transit will be safe from any prying eyes or accidents.
Not Being Clear on Business Requirements
You need to have an idea of what your day-to-day business requirements will be, so you can ask the right questions and look for a system that will work best with your procedures.
