Inteck, Inc. Develops Process for Historical Database Conversion: A Case Study

Share Article

Inteck, Inc. has created a case study that delves into the challenges a healthcare facility faces when transitioning from a legacy Healthcare Information System (HIS) to a new HIS. This transition will not only leave users of the old database, which houses a vast array of historical patient and account information, frustrated but also cost the facility thousands of dollars to maintain each month. A database conversion will ultimately create a user-friendly stand-alone system as well as eliminate the cost to maintain the old legacy system. This case study explores those challenges and their solution.

Inteck, Inc., an information technology (IT) consulting firm for the healthcare industry, produces a new case study on a process for Historical Database Conversion. This is the result of a recent project completed where Inteck consultants designed and implemented a stand-alone database healthcare professionals could access with ease.

Inteck has assisted facilities in saving or "converting" historical patient medical and financial information in the past. In a database conversion, patient medical and financial information is extracted from the legacy health information system (HIS) and housed in a user-friendly environment/database. This allows hospital personnel and physicians easy access to patient critical data. This service is offered when the legacy HIS is replaced by another dissimilar health information system. The challenge is to eliminate this unnecessary expense of maintaining an old HIS while continuing to access the historical information.

Inteck's knowledgeable and experienced consultants have written a case study that looks into the challenges a healthcare facility will face to preserve this historical database information when transitioning from a legacy health information system to a new system. This case study explores how Inteck can design a stand-alone database to house the historical data, eliminating added monthly expenses to maintain the old system.

"Inteck is dedicated to serving our clients with expertise and providing solutions to match their needs, so objectives can be met. Inteck's commitment to the healthcare industry remains to provide sound solutions to increase patient safety and the efficiency within a healthcare facility," stated Donald Jacobs, President, Inteck, Inc.
