In application decommissioning, as in life taking the first step is sometimes the hardest

Considerations and Recommendations for Your Legacy Application Decommissioning RFP Process

iCONECT HEALTHCARE, a technology leader that develops intuitive, web-based record and document archiving software, including its flagship platform iCONECT-XERA® has released an RFP Toolkit to help hospitals, integrated delivery networks, and group practices jumpstart the complex process of putting their legacy application decommissioning needs out to tender in order to comply with health record retention requirements.

“We realize that healthcare providers need help in committing to a long-term program of application decommissioning,” says Joe Stewart, SVP of iCONECT HEALTHCARE. “The healthcare industry has been going through a substantial period of transformation – organizational consolidation, huge investments in IT particularly the deployment of enterprise electronic health record systems, and ongoing changes in reimbursement policies are all driving the search for value. Healthcare CIOs are increasingly recognizing that application retirement is a program, not a ‘one and done.’“

The RFP toolkit includes an infographic, “8 Tough Questions for Your Vendor”, a technical paper, “Getting the Most Out of Your Application Decommissioning Partnership” that explores key topics for RFP writers, and an Excel® spreadsheet with more than 125 questions that can be used as a starting point for those seeking an application decommissioning partner.
