Retiring Legacy Applications for a Large Hospital Network
A large hospital system was migrating to the EPIC software product suite and as part of that migration, recognized a need to initiate an Application Retirement program. As part of the establishment of this program initiative, the hospital contracted with OpenText’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD) to assist them in retiring two applications – an HR system and a patient information management application
The ECD consulting team in turn elected to use the Flatirons Application Decommissioning for InfoArchive solution to implement the application retirement program.
Over the course of five months, the Application Decommissioning for InfoArchive solution was used to retire both a patient medical record application and a hospital HR system as pilot projects for a longer term Application Decommissioning Program. The solution delivered a very robust application retirement solution that exceeded the goals of the organization and in some areas provided features that exceeded that of the original applications.
