Legacy Data Migration Taskforce

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help member organizations reduce the cost, complexity, risk and labor burden associated with managing legacy data after a system is replaced in a healthcare organization.


Our charter is to discuss, develop and share information, tools and best practices that will guide stakeholders through the development of a legacy data management strategy to meet state and organizational record retention requirements.


The taskforce will create a set of deliverables aimed at providing guidance for stakeholders to accomplish the following steps to develop a legacy data management strategy:

  • Assess the current state of the IT Portfolio
  • Inventory legacy systems to be decommissioned
  • Map out legacy data migration needs
  • Develop a project plan and budget
  • Prioritize and document a system retirement schedule
  • Review legacy data management options
  • Identify internal or external project resources
  • Determine an environment for deployment
  • Identify data extraction/migration/retention vendors
  • Write and distribute a request for proposal (RFP)
  • Evaluate data extraction/migration/retention vendors
  • Document a legacy data management strategy
  • Contract with vendor(s) and execute on strategy

NCHICA has created a collaborative organization that no other State has achieved. It includes vendors, providers, payers, physicians, nurses, clinicians, attorneys, information technologists and other professionals, working together to improve healthcare within North Carolina in every way, from the use of technology, to public policy considerations, to patient privacy, and more. Belonging to, and participating in, this organization helps you to not only keep up with the changing healthcare environment, but to have some influence on those changes.
