DATA MIGRATION PROCESS

We understand no migration is equal... Whether it is Radiology or Cardiology this methodology applies to most projects

  1. DISCOVERY -  Identify studies in the source system (DICOM C-FIND)
  2. TARGET - Filter data that is not required to be moved, Ex: test studies.
  3. TESTING - Setup the initial run with a small batch of data to gauge performance and confirm source/destinations system health.
  4. MOVE - Setup automated migration with measured throughput.
  5. VERIFICATION – Validation of data moved comparing source and destination’s counts based on unique identifiers.
  6. ANALYTICS – Summary of Discovered Studies, Studies Migrated, Duplicates, Missing, Studies, Missing Images, Others 

DICOM MIGRATION

DICOM MIGRATION

Pass-through mode – sits between source and destination systems.
Store-Forward mode – retrieves and stores to itself before the final destination.

DICOM Part10 MIGRATION

DICOM PART10 MIGRATION

This type of migration bypasses the source system DICOM interface, accesses the source file system to parse and retrieve the DICOM data. Storage sources may include NFS and CIF from vendors like ISILON, NETAPPS and others

MEDIA MIGRATION

MEDIA MIGRATION

This type of migration also bypasses the source system DICOM interface to access the data and may include custom code to either de-containerized and/or uncompress/decode the data from its proprietary format.

NON-DICOM DATA MIGRATIONS

This type of migration takes the non-DICOM supplemental objects (scanned documents, attached .JPGs, .TIF, .TXT, .DOC, PDFs) directly from the source storage and its then DICOM encapsulated using a database extract from the source system to identify all the required demographics pertaining to each object. Usually these objects become part of the “already-migrated” studies.

DATA CLEANSING

Data can become “stale” after time, ex: patient names changed, married, missing medical record numbers, misspelled corrections etc. This can be addressed by data extracts from the source PACS and or HL7 feed from the RIS providing ADT updates which would trigger automatic corrections as the data is migrated. Rules can be applied to prepend/append medical record numbers as required by the customer. DICOM tags can be updated to meet certain conditions to drive PACS workflow based on requirements.

User-Friendly & Intuitive

Our self-intuitive and user friendly platform allows our customers to plan and perform their own migrations should they choose to.
