Planning and implementing a new EMR, ERP, or other major application requires a thoughtful data migration strategy. If the right questions aren’t asked at the start, it may be executed in a way that doesn’t meet the needs of all stakeholders, resulting in time-consuming and expensive rework or project cost overruns. In this session, panelists will share data migration perspectives, experiences, and scenarios encountered. Best practices and considerations for data governance, scope, mapping, matching, testing & validation will be discussed. Panelists will also weigh the merits of data migration and data abstraction, addressing the objective and subjective ROI from those approaches.
