HDMKLASroom (CxE2S3): Clinician Experience – The impact of healthcare delivery M&A; EHR conversion data governance
Assure success with EHR conversion through best practice data governance – clinical data conversion mapping techniques, converted data reconciliation and impact on workflows; plus recognizing any dependencies to ensure clinical decision support capabilities are maintained.
As healthcare delivery organizations connect, merge, and acquire, a major consideration is legacy data management. Historical data is imperative to providing patient care, and legacy data must be converted to the new system or archived to ensure continuity of care. Conversion of legacy data is contingent upon mapping source system clinical data elements to target system equivalents. Unfortunately, native EHR vendors often fall short with regards to semantic management, and, as a result, semi or full automation of dictionary, nomenclature and ontology mapping suggestions as part of data conversion is critical to reduce manual effort and invaluable to deliver continuity of care for clinicians. This panel explores topics including clinical data conversion mapping techniques, converted data reconciliation and impact on workflows, and the dependencies to ensure clinical decision support capabilities are maintained as part of EHR conversion.
