EHR Data Migration Process
Upgrading to NextGen software allows you to streamline tasks and workflows to free up medical professionals to spend even more time on providing world-class healthcare. To make that happen, clinicians must have the ability to efficiently access up to date, accurate data—and this requires a seamless migration of relevant information.
Your NextGen data migration plan should support the goals and objectives you’ve set for the overall EHR implementation. They must also fit within your project’s scope and be accomplished within budget and timelines. Then, your collaborative team of in-house IT experts and specialists from our network can collectively make decisions about:
- What data should be cleaned and migrated to NextGen
- What data (such as patient bill balances) shouldn’t be migrated
- What inactive data (such as old patient accounts) is ready to be archived
- How to clean data (manually, automatically, or a combination)
- How to merge/remove duplicate records before migrating them
- How to verify conversion and migration success with minimal risk and interruption
To source the talented professionals who can help to plan and seamlessly execute your NextGen data migration, you can rely upon the HealthTECH Resources network. You’ll benefit from our expert consultants’ extensive hands-on experience as they analyze your legacy system and determine what conversions need to be made to migrate to NextGen.
Our specialists can identify potential pitfalls for the data conversion and brainstorm work-arounds; recommend and test solutions; and then implement the EMR data migration or EHR data migration (depending on whether the legacy system is an EMR or an EHR).
Because no two NextGen projects are identical, sourced experts will offer customized recommendations throughout the process, keeping an eye on minimizing risk and maximizing your new technology’s ROI. So, no matter the specifics of your project, HealthTECH Resources can augment your staff in ways to fill in gaps of your unique situation—meeting even stringent staffing requests on urgent timelines.

NextGen Data Migration FAQs
In general, data migration involves transferring data from one system to your new one: NextGen. Data from legacy systems need to be cleaned and converted into the format that your new system uses. Our professionals follow best practices in all EHR data migration projects while customizing methodologies.
Sometimes, an all-in approach is preferred, one where the NextGen data migration takes place in one big transfer. Other times, the conversion happens in stages, perhaps by facility location or by department.
Each healthcare facility will have unique needs and an EMR migration/EHR migration will need to be customized for goals, objectives, workflows, and more. NextGen experts from our network will familiarize themselves with each of these as well as delve into the specifics of your legacy system.
From there, they will contribute to the formation of a plan and ensure that it fits with the project scope, timeline, budget, and more. This plan may include one major conversion and migration or may take a phased approach, depending upon your organization’s preferences, policies, and needs.
Once the migration plan is approved, our experts will continue to collaborate with your in-house IT team to implement the plan, test results, and verify success.
This refers to a data migration from your current EMR/EHR system to the robust NextGen application that helps ambulatory care organizations leverage the power of its technology to manage population health issues, revenue cycles and more.
This migration involves data assessment, including the legacy system’s formatting and functionalities, and comparing them to NextGen’s data structure. After a conversion plan is created and approved, data is cleaned and categorized before being optimally imported into NextGen. They’ll confirm conversion and migration success in completeness, accuracy, and accessibility.
