Market and regulatory changes, including the Affordable Care Act, have fueled a historic period of consolidation in the healthcare sector. As independent health systems struggle to survive on their own due to reduced payouts, healthcare mergers, acquisitions and divestitures are quickly escalating. According to Thomson Reuters, healthcare merger and acquisition (M&A) deals totaled US$672.9 billion during 2015, which represents a 71 percent increase from 2014.
Any healthcare M&A requires a consolidation of IT systems and underlying infrastructures, such as Active Directory (AD). But, no migration is as complex or critical as an AD consolidation. That’s because AD is the lifeblood of the IT infrastructure. It controls access to mission-critical applications, such as Epic or other EHR systems.
In healthcare, AD migration stakes go up. Most M&A projects have a hard deadline and tremendous pressure on the IT staff to finish the migration quickly. Downtime or data loss is unacceptable. It’s not just about losing money or productivity. Patient lives may depend on responsive IT systems.
So, we encourage you to watch our webcast. You’ll learn how to:
- Apply best practices for reducing migration risk and avoiding disruption
- Improve security, ensure compliance and simplify your consolidation
- Carefully manage your project before, during and after the merger
