Health Data Management

Whether your healthcare organization is growing through mergers and acquisitions or undergoing a system move, your legacy patient, employee and business records need to be retained. If your organization has legacy systems up in read-only mode, you may be at risk.

The solution? Data archiving. Not only does archiving legacy data reduce system costs, but it fortifies cybersecurity defenses, and is the best way to help ensure legal compliance. With the help of Harmony Healthcare IT, we cover whatever your legacy data needs. That includes offerings around the lifecycle of data, ranging from application portfolio rationalization to data extraction, migration, conversion, retention, integration and destruction. The comprehensive HealthData Platform™ of offerings are designed specifically for medical data storage, workflows, transactions, and interoperability.

Your legacy systems are inventoried and prioritized in an online application rationalization tool called HealthData Planner™. As decisions are made to decommission a legacy system, structured and unstructured data is either extracted and converted to a go-forward system (i.e., Epic, Cerner, MEDITECH) or migrated and secured onto one of our HITRUST CSF®-certified cloud-based storage solutions:

  • HealthData Archiver®, an active archive that stores records of any type that require ready access by unlimited business users leveraging a UI with intelligent workflows (i.e. release of information for HIM users or single sign-on for clinicians as integrated on Epic’s App Orchard or marketplaces for other leading electronic health record providers)
  • HealthData AR Manager™, and active archive which maintains necessary interfaces to claims scrubbers, clearinghouses, lockboxes, general ledgers, and statement firms, to store and manage legacy financial records that require complete accounts receivable wind down by revenue cycle users
  • HealthData Locker™, a cold storage solution that provides secure, cost-effective, long-term storage of records that requires only occasional IT-analyst access to files for compliance or disaster recovery

With regulations like the Cures Act driving interoperability and accessibility of all records, your records are then activated for interoperability with other systems, entities or consumers via HealthData Integrator™, which provides a set of tools or APIs based on common industry standards such as USCDI, FHIR, HL7, C-CDA, XML, or Direct.
