Healthcare organizations face unique requirements when it comes to retiring clinical systems. Understanding the various approaches to extraction, transformation, and storage of the contents of clinical systems is critical to correctly assessing their suitability for a usable and compliant healthcare data archival. This webcast will delve into the specific healthcare data archival strategies being used in the marketplace and will evaluate why some archival approaches are superior to others, by virtue of the way each of the approaches extract, store, and visualize data.

The methodologies used typically trade fidelity (how well it preserves the original shape and precision of the data) for accessibility (how easy it is to get at the information needed), and they trade how easily the solution can archive disparate sources of data (such as archiving both an EMR and a time-tracking system) with, again, accessibility. Further, most archival solutions do not contemplate that the data changes and the clinical chart available to the provider at the time the clinical decision was made can be inconsistent with the chart the archival solution produces for an eDiscovery inquiry.
Join us to gain a better understanding of marketplace options and an appreciation of the legal and compliance implications.
