MediQuant, a leading innovator and provider of enterprise active archiving and conversion solutions for hospitals and health systems, introduced CommunityArchive, a streamlined, cost-effective package for ambulatory sites and physician practices to extract, convert and archive legacy data in ambulatory electronic medical records (AEMRs) and practice management systems for faster implementation at a low price point.
CommunityArchive supports system transitions, pairing simplified scoping and contracting with best-practice data conversion services and archiving solutions. This approach helps users activate new AEMRs and legacy archives quickly and easily, whether archiving discrete data, non-discrete data or a combination. It also allows seamless, single-point access to archived legacy AEMR patient records and audit logs from the current EMR, and allows printing of full charts or specific patient chart items.
“Finances are top of mind with all health systems right now,” said Jim Jacobs, MediQuant chief executive officer. “Many of our hospital and acute care clients have significantly lowered expenses by archiving their records from legacy systems and retiring old, expensive EMRs.” He added, “With this new package, ambulatory practices can do the same, and large health systems can accelerate their archiving strategy for ambulatory practices they manage or have purchased in recent years, closing down as many as 50 different active-but-outdated AEMRs to save hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
“In addition to cost savings, archiving legacy data for better access helps to ease compliance and legal reporting and improves patient care across the organization. It’s a win all around,” said Jacobs.
