ELLKAY, a leader in healthcare connectivity solutions, now offers a full range of EMR to EMR Data Extraction and Conversion services, leveraging years of experience working with hundreds of software vendors. This service provides a worry-free and cost effective way to migrate priceless patient clinical data from one EMR to another. The new division solves a growing problem that is faced by physicians. 'Early Adopters' are often stuck with an EMR system that is not working the way they had imagined. The only obstacle to switching to a more fitting system is migrating existing data from legacy systems. ELLKAY Conversion is a new division dedicated to handling EMR / EHR Extraction and Conversion services. This division offers services including the extraction of current data within an existing EMR and the conversion of data into an importable format and system of choice.
EMR Software Companies / Distributors - How would you like a significant increase in EMR sales? "Just imagine how great it would be if your sales team offered a total 'win-win package' by continuing to offer your software solution along with the ability to have any current EMR data imported into your system" says Michael Fishweicher, ELLKAY's Vice President of Business Development. "Fact is, de-centralized patient information is not only dangerous; it is also a leading rejection that physicians have been known to run away from." Most EMR Sales Representatives have been in a situation like this before, probably very recently. Naturally, they will find themselves more frequently in practices that want to replace an existing EMR rather than deploy an EMR for the first time. "With ELLKAY as your partner," says Lior Hod, ELLKAY's President and Co-Founder, "your sales team will notice a significant boost in EMR sales amongst offices with a previous EMR in place. Regardless of which EMR they are currently using, your team can offer full clinical data extraction and conversion services." Data Extraction services are available even if the previous EMR software vendor is no longer in business or no support is available., ELLKAY will 'extract' the data from whichever system currently being deployed, and 'convert', or reformat it, to meet the new software's specifications. This frees the physician using the legacy EMR system as a history archive.
EMR also known as Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, are paperless patient files for storing clinical and health related patient information. An EMR system is used by physicians to reduce overhead, cut costs, increase revenue, and enhance patient care. The systems often handle text as well as images and other media files in one complete database. This information can be linked with billing systems, insurance systems, pharmacies, and laboratories. Physicians have been upgrading these systems to limit the need of copying and storing paper patient records, and to eliminate physical storage space at the office and off-site locations. In addition to the physical costs of materials and storage, EMR saves time and resources. Time wasted searching for charts is eliminated, and the ability of multiple staff members to simultaneously access one patient's record significantly increases efficiency. Since these files are generally password protected, they allow physicians to comply with HIPAA standards of medical record privacy.
Most EMR systems support patient medical records for medications, allergies, patient history, encounter notes, immunizations, vitals, and digital laboratory results.
