When moving to a new PAS or healthcare IT system source data will inevitably need cleansing and transforming. The risk, effort and time taken to do this are often underestimated, while any mistakes can have huge repercussions for patient safety and Trust resources.
Risks associated with data migration and transformation can be minimised by early preparation, quantification of source data fitness, informed testing and experience.
Stalis has many years’ experience of successful data migration and transformation projects and would be happy to help with planning and coaching.
