Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
BridgeHead offers a variety of services to assist you in migrating data to support your data management strategies. By coupling these services with the software solutions we offer, BridgeHead is able to migrate both clinical and non-clinical data from one proprietary system into our HealthStore® Independent Clinical Archive, or between various storage platforms and devices. We offer both DICOM and unstructured data migration services to support this.

BridgeHead Professional Services staff are experts in data analysis and migration. We have developed a workflow (described in more detail further down) that ensures any migration follows an efficient, standardised process. Data is the lifeblood of an organisation and, therefore, must be treated in the appropriate manner.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
BridgeHead operates its service to a very high quality in line with ITIL standards. BridgeHead has selected ISO as its chosen standards for service delivery and is fully certified for ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO27001. These standards cover the delivery of BridgeHead's support and maintenance activities.

The BridgeHead Professional Services team has over 20 years of experience in healthcare data management and, during this time, has worked with numerous vendors and technology. We have developed reference architectures to ensure the software is always running at optimum performance and fully utilises the underlying infrastructure. As BridgeHead’s HealthStore is truly vendor agnostic, it is able to work with any vendor’s infrastructure, such as servers, storage arrays and hypervisors, which means the solution can be designed to ensure it meets the customer’s requirements. BridgeHead will work with the customer to review their current environment and provide recommendations based on their core requirements.

For every engagement, BridgeHead work with the customer to agree a data quality plan and data quality register.
