Kootenai Health Selects Parallon Technology Solutions for Legacy Data Extract and Archiving Project

Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene, ID has selected Parallon Technology Solutions (PTS) to implement a web-based solution that provides long-term storage and access to their historical MEDITECH data files for improved access to legacy patient information. The scope of this project spans across 6 separate facilities with unique mnemonics and user bases.

Recently, it became clear to Kootenai Health that they needed on-going access to their old legacy MEDITECH Magic data hosted by a third party. In order to meet the requirements laid out by their shareholders and principles, Kootenai required a more comprehensive legacy data archiving solution that would provide consistent access and storage of legacy patient information.

PTS, in agreement with Kootenai, will work together to load the data defined from Kootenai’s MEDITECH Magic 5.67 environment and make that data available in the Legacy Viewer Application that will reside on Kootenai’s hosted infrastructure. During this time, PTS will also provide project management for all initiatives surrounding the legacy data extract and archive. Kootenai recognized PTS’ in-depth MEDITECH and operational knowledge and trusts that PTS’ resources will help Kootenai expand their capabilities in MEDITECH and deliver solutions that will ultimately improve the patient and clinician experience.
