Data Retention & Interoperability Solution

Your Challenge. Our Solution.

CITI’s Data Retention & Interoperability Solution (DRIS) is designed to decommission legacy applications and data, resulting in tangible opex savings.

DRIS provides a simple yet rich graphical user interface (GUI) for ease of access. Client defined roles and authorizations allow clinicians to access relevant data through their EHR, while other users, like HIM and legal, can access directly. DRIS also provides a simple and easy way to use the GUI interface for report generation. Users can also run queries, make parameter changes, and add filters to visualize data with ease, while the complex processing runs in the background.

DRIS is a HIPAA compliant, light-weight, standard-based, vendor-neutral, comprehensive repository. It is designed to archive electronic protected health information (PHI) from all major enterprise databases of clinical, financial, payer, human resources, payroll, documents, images and ERP applications. Security was designed into the core of DRIS which includes extensive audit logging, role-based security, and an extensible user authentication module compatible with Active Directory/LDAP, EHR SSO, and OAuth/OpenID Connect as well as support for full database encryption.

The DRIS platform is built on a single database to archive financial, clinical, payer, human resources and supply chain data along with documents and images. DRIS uses the data lake ‘store-everything’ approach to allow for the storage and quick retrieval of large sets of diverse data types which are then processes by open sourced frameworks like Hadoop.

Return on Investment

The financial gains from decommissioning legacy systems with DRIS are attributed to decreasing or eliminating legacy system licenses, weekly overhead for data management, legal discovery requests, loss of productivity, and hardware and infrastructure costs. The result is cost savings and increased productivity due to the simpler, single vendor-neutral archive, rather than multiple legacy systems.

The graph provides a summary of DRIS’ return on investment value as a result of archiving legacy applications over a five-year period. DRIS follows a perpetual license model, 24/7 support and fixed maintenance cost regardless of the number of applications decommissioned, and the organization only bear a one-time professional services cost for data extraction per application.
