Migrating Data to eClinicalWorks

Are you leaving your current EHR system and moving to eClinicalWorks? You’ll need to extract your valuable data from your existing system, and the good news is, Mi7 Solutions has over a decade of experience working with data migration to and from eClinicalWorks! Let us leverage this knowledge to help you create a data migration plan that will create a smooth implementation.

What are the types of data that we can help you migrate to eClinicalWorks? The Mi7 team will help you categorize your data, and determine which discrete data to migrate (into discrete data fields in eCW), and which summary data (extracted from your current system in PDF format) you’ll need. Some of the examples include:

Discrete Data

  • Patient demographics
  • Vitals
  • Schedules
  • Patient Histories
  • Master files, such as insurances and employers

Summary Data (PDF format)

  • Progress notes
  • Lab / DI reports
  • Medical Summaries
  • OB Flowsheets
  • Telephone Encounters
  • Flowsheets

And there are many more, depending on your use and complexity of your installation. But don’t let this seem overwhelming! The Mi7 team will be there for every step of the process, serving as your advocate with your existing EHR vendor and with eClinicalWorks. We’ll work with you and the vendors to determine important pieces of information that will impact your data migration to eClinicalWorks, including:

  • What data can your current EHR vendor provide? What format is it available in, and do they have a specification for the data?
  • When can your current EHR vendor provide a copy of the data for testing in eClinicalWorks?
  • How much lead time does your vendor need to extract the final copy of the data?
  • What is your timeline?

Knowing the language, and understanding the key points involved in the migration process, including data formats (discrete data versus summary data), as well as being able to assess the quality of data in the current system, will help make the process more manageable for your team.
