Where Can ACOs Go When EHRs Don’t Meet Their Needs?


As KLAS reported in their recent study, the majority (68%) of physician-led accountable care organizations surveyed are finding that their EHR systems are not meeting all of their technological requirements.

While EHR use is important for ACO participation, most EHRs aren’t yet able to offer the connectivity, care management, or reporting capabilities that ACOs need to improve and report on healthcare outcomes.

Acquiring accurate data from each system for each practice in an ACO can be difficult, especially for physician practices with limited IT resources, disparate EHR systems, or very complex EHR systems.

At ELLKAY, we’ve used our EMR data expertise to design a comprehensive solution that helps ACOs supplement their EHR technology. Leveraging over a decade of practice in mining healthcare data and experience in over 900 versions across over 450 EMR/PM systems, we’ve created LKPatientDataLink.

LKPatientDataLink is a one-stop solution for EMR/EHR connectivity and clinical data acquisition. Connecting to thousands of different individual practice’s EHR systems, it extracts any and all relevant data, including delta changes of patient records, and delivers them to ACOs and ACO solution providers in a standard, discrete, useable format.

EHR Replacement Shouldn’t be a Nightmare


Moving data from one EHR, EMR, or practice management system to another can be a more complicated process than the initial EMR implementation.

Medical data needs to be located, analyzed, and extracted from the old EMR, then converted to meet the new EMR’s specifications so that patient demographic information, insurance payer information, medical history, medications, immunizations and more can be available within the different modules of the new system. While accomplishing a system migration is stressful for the physician practice, it is also a time-consuming, resource-draining process for the vendors of both the legacy and the new, target system.

ELLKAY specializes in data extraction and conversion services. PM, EHR and EMR companies use ELLKAY to overcome their connectivity and data-transfer challenges. We work with the physician practice and the EMR vendor to ensure data is correct, in the new system’s format, and that this data is available to practices from day one in their new software.

With over 25,000 practices connected and a system capability arsenal exceeding 450+ EMR/PM systems, we’ve become experts in the transfer of medical data. To learn more about ELLKAY’s data conversion services, visit our EMR Data Extraction and Conversion page or contact us today!
