Epic EHR on Azure


Healthcare providers with their Epic EHR environments on-prem are an ideal fit for this solution. Migrate to Azure!

Healthcare providers with a cloud adoption strategy, who have all system environments of their Epic EHR deployed and hosted in an on-prem data center are an ideal fit for this solution.

Offering services: migrate Epic EHR and other apps’ production and/or DR workloads to Azure.
Three components comprise the offering:

  • Advisory – discovery and planning phase + app portfolio assessment
  • Migration – multi-disciplinary team of healthcare and cloud professionals
  • Managed Services – optional application-level support + cloud run and maintain, incident response, etc.

Discovery – Epic migration planning, we assess and rationalize the entire applications portfolio:

  • Healthcare provider advisory services and Cloud advisory services
  • Undertake a full applications portfolio assessment and rationalization
  • Identify candidates for apps migration to the cloud: “lift-and-shift” or modernize and migrate
  • Develop a business case and roadmap for all recommended migrations
  • Identify additional IT transformation opportunities for enhancement of the migration impact including; cloud and data center consolidation, network and security compliance, ransomware readiness, and others

Implementation – perform migrations

  • Establish landing zones for migration
  • Staged migration, testing, and push to production (and/or any other environments such as Disaster Recovery)

Managed Services – ongoing run-and-maintain

NTT DATA provides you with all required services:

  • Planning
  • Deployment
  • Ongoing managed services – for the migration of an on-prem version of Epic EHR to Azure
This can include any or all system environments, e.g., build, dev, test, train and/or disaster recovery and/or production

But why?

  • Post-pandemic and economic driven financial and staffing stresses
  • Scarcity of skilled IT talent and increased cost reduction pressures
  • Stakeholder expectations of HCIT to enable much needed innovation have only increased
