Many healthcare organizations are challenged when it comes to legacy data. The organization wants to move into a different ERM system, but the costs can be prohibitive. Many organizations have already moved to another platform but still have to maintain the old system for existing patient records. This can be a problem.

This is a Problem

Being locked down to your legacy provider creates some mobility problems, expensive operational costs, and limits your organizations options for growth in the future. The lock-in effect is a business strategy that many software platform employ to secure their customers. This is no different with ERM providers. Once the decision is made to make a change, the legacy provider is typically less than helpful in helping the organization transition to a competitor.

If you have already moved into a new system, having to maintain an outdated EMR is both costly and inefficient. Maintain licensing, data storage space and user training all add to the challenges of maintaining an additional outdated ERM system.
