MediQuant Inc. to Showcase Its Debut Record in New Orleans

Pioneer in healthcare data archiving solutions to debut jazz single “Legacy System Blues” at 2013 HIMSS conference 

Brecksville, OH  – MediQuant Inc., the pioneer in interoperable “Active Archiving” data solutions for legacy healthcare data, will be showcasing DataArk, the leading solution for data migration issues, at this year’s Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, March 3-7.

Tony Paparella, president and founder of MediQuant, has been a musician for most of his life. He saw this year’s HIMSS conference in New Orleans as an opportunity to pay tribute to his musical roots. He and his band, the DeCommissioners, decided to write and record a song based on the data migration issues many hospitals and other healthcare organizations face called “Legacy System Blues,” which was recorded and pressed on a vinyl 45.

“Legacy System Blues” is a reminder to healthcare providers they must be prepared to handle the hidden costs and time associated with converting from legacy systems.

MediQuant is managing legacy data beyond the traditional definition of clinical archives and financial archives to help healthcare providers get on the right track to retire their legacy applications and decommission mainframe and other systems. Clients can avoid running old applications to allow for legacy data access by using DataArk, the unique Active Archiving solution. DataArk has helped save clients up to 80% in legacy system costs by retaining easy end-user access to detail-level data while decommissioning retiring applications.

MediQuant has already provided healthcare-IT data management solutions for leading U.S. health systems, including: Catholic Health Partners, Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System, Kettering Health Network, Oregon Health & Science University, University of Mississippi Medical Center, and West Virginia University Hospitals, among others.

MediQuant Inc. to Exhibit at 2013 HIMSS Conference in New Orleans

Pioneer in healthcare data archiving solutions to show attendees how they can maintain real time access to data and actively bill accounts while decommissioning retiring systems by archiving legacy data in an  

ACTIVE archive

Brecksville, OH  – MediQuant Inc., the pioneer in interoperable “Active Archiving” data solutions for healthcare revenue cycle professionals, will showcase its DataArk archive software at the 2013 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition from March 3-7 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

MediQuant representatives can be found at exhibit #5649 and will discuss dealing with legacy data management issues and controlling the hidden cost and time associated with system conversions.

As hospitals and other organizations implement new health information systems, they typically retain their old systems to maintain access to vital financial, clinical, HR and other data. These archaic legacy systems are expensive to maintain, and support fees for hardware and software, as well as internal resource costs can range from hundreds of thousands of dollars to several million dollars per year for each legacy system. Support for legacy systems may be inadequate or unavailable as well. By using MediQuant’s DataArk to manage their old data, hospitals eliminate the need for their legacy systems, resulting in significant IT cost savings.

MediQuant has already provided healthcare-IT data management solutions for leading U.S. health systems, including: Catholic Health Partners, Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System, Kettering Health Network, Oregon Health & Science University, University of Mississippi Medical Center, and West Virginia University Hospitals among others.
