Legacy EMR Data Archiving With ChartViewer

Practices migrating to a new EMR system are not always able to have all of their legacy data converted and imported to the new EMR. When a data conversion from the old system is not a viable or desirable option, GDS’ ChartViewer keeps the legacy EMR data in a structured, discrete, and easy to use format so the practice can start fresh with their new EMR system. GDS’ ChartViewer is provided in a standalone format or can be launched from within the new EMR; it is a searchable, read-only archive that is organized by a patient chart.

Data can be stored temporarily and moved to the new EMR later or, if needed, stored in ChartViewer permanently. Providers have access to their old patient records in a structured, customizable, meaningful way at all times.
