New Albany, OH and Laredo, TX (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
Laredo Medical Center, a Level III-designated Trauma Center in Laredo, Texas, has selected STi Healthcare to provide data and record migration services for its legacy obstetrics software solution and the OLAH Viewer for Legacy Content Management (LCM) for long-term medical records retention.
Clinicians and staff needed access to legacy patient information and records and required a solution to meet its high-quality and secure standards. Laredo Medical Center was faced with expensive maintenance and support fees for a system no longer in use for long-term records retention. The combination of the STi Data Migration Solution and OLAH Viewer allows legacy systems to be completely shut off avoiding costly upkeep and maintenance fees.
According to Brian Olah, Founder and CEO of STi Healthcare, “The STi Data Migration Solution will allow Laredo OB legacy patient records to be securely retained and accessible for the 20+ years, required storage of maternal and infant patient records, without having to maintain the NaviCare WatchChild System.
The OLAH Viewer will help Laredo Medical Center manage legacy medical records retrieval while keeping track of access activity to patient records. OLAH integrates with the hospitals existing security platform allowing Laredo Medical Center to support stipulations set forth by HIPAA — the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which guides access and use of protected health information (PHI).
The OLAH Viewer is the industry leading Legacy Content Management solution for long-term medical records retention. OLAH supports searchable, secure retention of indexed patient records extracted from legacy systems. OLAH is a zero footprint, web-based, VM appliance that can be integrated with Laredo Medical´s existing data center and security platform to allow for flexible configuration of usage including restricted group and/or role based access to archived patient records.
