How to create a Data Quality Health Check process for your Healthcare Data Migration

Ensuring you know how much effort and time is going to be required for a healthcare system data migration is essential to having a robust plan and budget.

In this online workshop we learn of the kinds of issues that can be investigated upfront during a ‘Data Healthcheck’ to ensure your healthcare data is fit for migration.

Presenting the webinar is Julie Waters, a Health Informatics expert with 18 years experience of migrating and improving data quality across healthcare systems.

Julie works for Avoca Systems, a global specialist in delivering Cerner Millennium Healthcare projects.

By attending this joint Data Quality Pro / Data Migration Pro webinar you will learn:

  • The difficulties and importance of getting demographics right
  • The importance of identifying source filters and joins correctly
  • Transactional data sets like inpatient waiting lists
  • What can go wrong with patient or activity identifiers

Whatever your role you will gain fascinating insights into errors, deficiencies and anomalies in the source data which can cause your healthcare implementation to be delayed.

Identifying these early in the project gives you the best possible opportunity to plan for it and avoid pitfalls.
