Data migration is the importation of a legacy PACS, RIS, or both into the SIMMS Enterprise. Information from previously-used applications should be migrated before the SIMMS installation process (if possible), and be made available for SIMMS technicians to retrieve in one complete, properly-labelled batch. After the migration is complete, data will be searchable and retrievable directly from the SIMMS Enterprise.
That means, you won’t have to run secondary systems in parallel, eliminating the problem of multiple workflows and the resulting decreases in productivity.
The following can be transferred directly into SIMMS:
- Patient demographics
- Referring physicians
- Radiologist information
- Final reports
