While electronic medical records and EMR systems have long been touted as “the future,” the closure of a healthcare facility or hospital highlight some weaknesses with this format, including the ongoing carrying costs of a subscription-based service.
Cariend’s technical resources help transform your medical records using HIPAA-compliant methods to provide continued access to patient data when requested. The format of the solution will vary by client and be tailored to meet each client’s unique situation.
For a business that is no longer operating, the ideal path to managing digital records is to eliminate reliance on third party systems or connectivity. The legal retention of the records may outlast a third-party company or product, as those entities could cease to exist as well, cutting off access to the records. The cost of maintaining these systems or subscriptions through the statutory retention period must also be considered. A best practice is to perform a one-time conversion or export of your proprietary data to a generic format (such as PDF, CSV, etc.) ensuring no future costs, access, or technical issues get in the way of a successful custodial records management program. Cariend’s technical resources will provide continued access to patient data when requested. The solution will depend on each client’s situation; however, we have created solutions involving cold storage, virtualizing legacy hardware, patient data export, ongoing cloud-based hosting, and ongoing subscription services.
Via strategic partnerships, Cariend has experience working with many of healthcare’s most popular EHR systems, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Amazing Charts
- Azalea Health

Why Cariend for Electronic Records?
The decision to close a business, whatever the reason, is a pivotal moment, but without the proper transition of electronic records, you could be stuck paying for an EMR subscription until your last record meets its retention. That could cost you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your records. Let Cariend’s technical experts and strategic partnerships provide a simple, upfront solution for your records.
