“Why Should We Consider Using ChartViewer?”
Moving from one EHR (Electronic Health Record) to another is difficult enough without worrying about the integrity of your patient and clinical data. It can be incredibly tedious and laborious if this is left to an individual staff member.
There are a variety of formats to use when transferring existing data into a new EHR. Full records can be sent using an HL7 CDA format, SQL queries, and/or proprietary import functions. However, this process is prone to errors.
Did you know that 95% of the time healthcare organizations can’t migrate all of the data out of their old EHRs into the new one?
When your healthcare practice or hospital needs to transfer data from one EHR to another, using ChartViewer ensures all your legacy data is preserved. It provides fast, compliant, and secure access to all of your patient data.

Regulations in Massachusetts require that patient charts be kept on hand for 7 years for adults, and up to 18 years for children. Other states require even longer terms of up to 25 years.
You can’t afford to lose patient data from your legacy EHR system when upgrading. And you certainly can’t afford to be hit with penalties and fines from noncompliance. ChartViewer from GDS archives patient data permanently to ensure you comply with these regulations.
