System Migrations and Version Upgrades

Client Challenges

It can be difficult to sift through the conflicting messages around upgrades: on the one hand, vendors insist that it’s urgent to upgrade to the next version today, while financial watchdogs in your organization want to make due with current solutions as long as possible.

At S&P, we can objectively help you assess the risks, benefits and costs of upgrades.

Migrating and accommodating disparate solutions (or versions) is another common challenge in today’s environment of mergers, practice acquisitions, and organizational growth. Often, it’s the human aspect of migrations that present more difficulties than the technology itself.

We can help with both, thanks to a team with deep vendor, clinical, and communications skills— honed over the course of many engagements with clients of all descriptions.

What is the ideal time to tune-up your legacy systems?

What is the ideal time to tune-up your legacy systems?

A legacy system, or technology that could be a candidate for replacement by a more modern solution, often relies on software patches and custom workarounds to continue running. While the implementation or upgrading of a new solution can feel like a significant investment, it will likely save you money in thelong run by maximizing your efficiencies and growing revenue.
