This session will discuss the current process being undertaken at St. Luke's Health System in Boise, Idaho to address a significant data retention, archive and migration project. A transition to one standard EHR across the organization was the primary catalyst to starting this initiative. The project focused on first understanding the current data utilization practices of this multi-entity organization with a multitude of legacy applications. Several of the systems were experiencing end-of-life issues and the overall increase in maintenance costs was going to be significant. After collecting and creating an inventory of all the data the next step was to develop a retention policy that would provide guidance on what information would need to be retained. Once the final decisions were made on what information needed to be retained evaluation of archive solutions was started to determine the most appropriate strategy and technology solutions.
