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!
