Have you considered?

Plan to be down

  • Anticipate 8-18 hours for MEDITECH conversions (all platforms), with potential for 24 hours
  • Scheduled downtimes can occur for maintenance and upgrades on a monthly and quarterly basis: 3 to 5 hours average

Watch for Extra Costs

  • Average cost of 3 Magic sites maintaining a legacy system is $23,000/month/site
  • Many organizations see costs between $50K and $100K for server room renovations, new equipment, and upgrades

Don't Leave Data Behind

  • Seek clarification on terms used such as 'standard' versus 'all' when discussing what data will be transitioned to the new HCIS
  • Understand what will be archived versus populated into the new EMR
  • Understand how account numbers and medical record number's will be transitioned

Other Considerations

  • Integration needs are often not considered up front and can impact the overall migration timeframe
  • Reporting presents new challenges as the staff must learn new reporting solutions and has to discover where data will reside versus where the data used to reside
