Data Migration Initiatives with Cerner

Cerner software systems

Cerner Hospitals, Health Systems and Provider Organizations Have Applied Boston Software Systems’ Automation Technology for Years.

Our project managers are Cerner SME's. As a result, our customers benefit from having tens-of-thousands of complete patient records precisely transferred in a matter of days - improving user satisfaction, reducing costs, and eliminating the clinical and administrative burnout that accompanies incomplete or missing data. 

By working with Boston Software Systems, Cerner clients gain a pivotal advantage based on our extensive knowledge of the system, its constraints, and how to optimize use. In addition, our knowledge of HIPAA, PHI and data privacy and security requirements, assures risk is minimized throughout each complex or simple data migration initiative via Cerner systems. 

In Cerner EHR platform migration, there is an administrative component and a clinical component. In administrative uses, when patient appointments have been manually mass loaded into the new system, there is a significant opportunity for error. The cost of outsourcing or overtime for weeks or months causes budget overruns and affects project timelines.

Additionally, organizations put patient / clinician / facility scheduling at risk with appointment errors resulting from manual data input. This creates significant cost issues which our platform migration experience quickly eliminates for the organization.

On the clinical side, a major healthcare organization in the United States utilized our healthcare automation technology to migrate clinical information. The information was available on  DAY ONE in the new Cerner platform. Whether data is free text or discrete, this solution allowed clinicians to easily access the right patient information without multiple logins and eliminated the time drains associated with the "look up, navigate and find" cycle.Types of data made available included:

  • Medications
  • EKG Results
  • Allergies/ ADR's 
  • Medical/Surgical/Family histories & active problems
  • Associated Charge Capture
  • Immunizations & Vaccines
  • Medical notes
  • Diagnosis information
  • Labs/ Pharmacy

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.
