Elements of EHR Migration Processes
The ability for medical professionals to access accurate data is at the heart of electronic health records (EHR) systems. So, effective MEDITECH data migration is a crucial part of your overall implementation project. Each step taken and each decision made should support your goals, objectives, and action plans for the overall project and fit within its scope, timelines, and budget.
As part of this decision making, your collaborative team will decide what data to migrate (and not to, such as patient bill balances) and what is inactive and ready to be archived. They must create customized strategies for cleaning and quality verification, removing duplicates, and migrating the data to MEDITECH with minimal interruption in your organization’s ability to provide healthcare services.
As part of your resource allocation, specifically for EHR data conversion tasks, include a line item for human talent who can plan and execute the migration effectively and cost efficiently. To source the professionals you need, you can count on HealthTECH Resources network of MEDITECH data migration experts.

MEDITECH Data Migration FAQs
People often use these terms interchangeably, so we’ll break them down here. EHR migration specifically refers to data transfers involving electronic health records (EHR). So, when migrating data to MEDITECH, which is an EHR, you’d be involved in EHR data migration. As a side note, if migrating from an electronic medical records (EMR) system, you might also hear the process called an EMR migration. Or, another term is an EHR data conversion.
Healthcare data migration, meanwhile, is a broader term because it doesn’t specify whether this is an EMR or an EHR migration. Any time that a hospital, emergency room, physician’s office, clinic, or other facility providing health care transfers data from one system to another, that’s an example of healthcare data migration.
This specifically refers to migrating data to the MEDITECH application. Thousands of healthcare institutions use MEDITECH’s fully integrated modern software to provide quality care to the communities they serve.
Steps involved include assessing the formatting and functionalities of MEDITECH and comparing them to the data being imported into the software. EHR data conversion experts then create a plan to clean, categorize, verify, and transfer relevant data while archiving other pieces of information. Once this is complete, verification audits can ensure completeness of the conversion and accessibility of the data.
