Moving to a new EMR system is a monumental task that effects everyone in your organization and involves almost all aspects of your IT environment including your data protection strategy. Join eGroup, Rubrik, and Conway Medical Center to learn how Conway Medical Center created a “healthy” IT environment that is well protected and versatile which made the transition to their new EMR extremely successful. Discussion topics include:
•    Conway Medical Center’s approach to holistically assessing all of their HIT infrastructure, determining improvements to be made and identifying issues that had to be fixed before their EMR launch
•    How Rubrik solidified their data protection strategy and gives them versatility to manage their data
•    How they prioritized HIT maintenance and upgrades to get the maximum benefits with the least disruptions to service
•    How HIT infrastructure improvements led to less “down-time”, a more stable environment and the retirement of multiple legacy systems that ultimately saved money and made IT staff available to focus less on maintenance and more on strategy
•    How they included doctors’ nurses, and clinicians in the HIT improvement process to identify their needs and requirements and incorporate them into the overall improvement plan
