Healthcare M&A Best Practices: How to Restructure Active Directory with ZeroIMPACT

Posted on

Market and regulatory changes such as the Affordable Care Act are fueling a historic period of consolidation in the healthcare sector. Independent health systems are struggling to survive on their own due to reduced payouts, driving healthcare mergers, acquisitions and divestitures at a rapid pace. According to Thomson Reuters, healthcare M&A deals totaled US$672.9 billion during 2015, which was a 71% increase from 2014.

Any healthcare M&A requires a consolidation of IT systems and underlying  infrastructures such as Active Directory. No migration is as complex or as  critical as an AD consolidation. That’s because AD is the life blood of the IT  infrastructure, as 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 there’s a LOT of 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 time. Patient lives may depend on responsive IT systems.
 
In this webcast, you get best practices for reducing risk and avoiding disruption. Learn how to improve security, ensure compliance and simplify your AD consolidation, with an integration process to carefully manage your project before, during and after the actual merger.
