Changing the Paradigm: EHR Cloud Migration During the Pandemic
For more than 100 years, Seattle Children’s has specialized in meeting the unique physical, emotional and developmental needs of children. One of the largest children’s hospitals in the U.S., it is dedicated to providing hope, care, and cure. So when the hospital consolidated its EHR systems in the cloud, it did so with the utmost care.
As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, Seattle Children’s was in the middle of a digital transformation, including a fully virtual EHR cloud migration. While the value of cloud is evident, there are lessons learned, economic considerations, and goals that must be established to successfully migrate. Join this session to hear about these success factors, and how cloud agility has positioned Seattle Children’s to support its ever-changing clinical environment.
-Analyze the challenges and key considerations of moving from Cerner to Epic via a cloud-based deployment model
-Identify how children’s hospitals handle IT operations and management in a largely virtual model during the pandemic
-Understand the process of shifting staff from traditional IT operations to more strategic patient-centric priorities
