Improve patient care with a Modern Data Platform

Migrate Your Legacy Healthcare Systems to On-Premises or Cloud with Simpson Associates

Many healthcare organisations still use outdated, on-premises applications that slow productivity, are usually expensive to maintain and suffer from poor performance. As a result, healthcare workers may spend a significant amount of time on troubleshooting and workarounds. Old, unpatched or neglected systems can lead to staff burnout and patient safety risks.

Reliable data is essential for making informed decisions in healthcare. However, outdated applications can make it difficult to access and aggregate data leading to less informed decisions being made and missed opportunities for improvement.

From the initial data strategy to providing a managed service for on-premises or your cloud application, Simpson Associates can assist you in migrating your legacy systems to the cloud.
