CHICAGO & NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legacy data management is critical to minimizing the disruption of EMR system replacement and ensuring the transition does not compromise patient safety. Now, a strategic offering between Galen and Harris Data Integrity Solutions, allows client partners the ability to engage a single, Best-in-KLAS Services and Archival solution provider to unlock additional value and cost savings through Cleanup, Migrate, and Archive.
“A critical component of any EMR system transition is the analysis and cleansing of the MPI, an absolute prerequisite before migrating EMR platforms. It is an essential step that eliminates duplicate patient records and mitigates the risk of misidentification and safety issues that can arise from a contaminated MPI,” said Lora Hefton, Executive Vice President of Harris Data Integrity Solutions. “By ensuring the availability of high-quality patient data, this partnership between Galen and Harris Data Integrity Solutions creates an offering that directly contributes to improved patient care, safety, and outcomes, all while optimizing health IT investments.”
Harris Data Integrity Solutions delivers industry-leading data integrity services and software to reduce duplicate medical records and minimize the ongoing cost of maintaining quality patient data. This includes a team of credentialled and highly experienced identity experts performing MPI and EMPI cleanup services with Harris Data Integrity Solutions’ proprietary automated duplicate resolution technology and third-party data sources.
“Central to the success of the migration process is the accuracy and quality of the MPI,” said Steve Brewer, President of Galen Healthcare Solutions. “In context of Galen’s approach to archival, which uniquely retains all data (including metadata) in VitalCenter Online (VCO), significant efficiencies and cost savings are achieved through coordination with the data migration and MPI cleanup efforts.”
