What are your obsolete applications costing you?

As IT adoption grew within healthcare, it happened at different speeds and without a clear lead from the IT department. Many departments ‘grew their own’ applications. In fact, Radiology, in many hospitals, grew its IT infrastructure faster than the IT Department itself. Applications were often written or acquired by a clinician in the department without IT involvement, and when this person left or retired, the application was left unmanaged and unmaintained. Over time the function of many of these applications have been consumed by other systems but frequently this has left the original data at risk. This data cannot be simply deleted, at least no one is likely to authorise its deletion, and as a result legacy applications are kept running just to have access to their data.

Much Ado About Unstructured Data?

Unstructured data is data that is stored in files rather than databases.  It is unstructured in that it is generally not organized for easy access.  There may be an application database with links to the files on disk that allows easy access from the application, but otherwise, application access is much more difficult
