Cerner - Automation throughout migration
Cerner hospitals have been taking advantage of Boston Software Systems technology for years, automating processes with every module in Cerner’s solutions. As our customers upgrade their systems, they are finding even greater value in automating processes associated with their HIS platform migration.
In any Cerner platform migration strategy there is a business/finance component as well as a clinical component. Automation is critical to accurately and efficiently migrating data in all areas of the organization. For example, in the business office, when appointments have been manually mass loaded into the new system, the opportunity for error is significant, and the cost of outsourcing or overtime for weeks or months causes budget overruns and affects project timelines. Additionally, organizations put patient satisfaction at risk from appointment errors resulting from manual migration. Boston Software Systems’ automation platform ensures 100% accuracy, fast turnaround and dramatic savings – in many cases, millions of dollars are saved.
In a major healthcare organization in the US our automation platform was leveraged to migrate clinical information. The migration strategy was successful because all desired data was available in the new system DAY ONE. Whether the data was free text or discrete data, this solution allowed clinicians to deliver optimal care by easily accessing information contained in the legacy system without multiple logins and eliminate the time required to look up, navigate and find the patient of interest. Clinicians continue to have access to important patient records through what might be a multi-year migration process. The type of data made available, but not limited to, is:
- EKG Results
- Medical-surgical history & active problems
- Medical history file
- Diagnosis information

The automation migration platform from Boston Software Systems made it possible to quickly and accurately migrate our clinical documentation and our registration and scheduling system. This allowed us to decrease duplicate documentation, lessen productivity constraints and increase patient satisfaction by reducing time spent waiting for data.
