EVENT: Establishing a New Normal: Key Considerations for IT Leaders
Figure 5 - Phase IV
At the end of phase 4 the only remaining stations on the CS 1000 equipment were analog patient telephones. In this state the CS 1000 had become completely de-risked and converted into an analog gateway. Realistically the telephony system could remain in this state indefinitely, buying time to evaluate a next-generation system for patient phones that might include migration to a patient-entertainment platform, or migration to lower cost SIP telephones.
Migration – Phase V (End State)
Phase 5 of the system migration consisted of (please see Figure 6 below):
- Migration of analog telephones to low-cost Cisco SIP phones
- CS 1000 decommissioning
Figure 6 - Phase V (End State)
Depending upon the approved budget, the system migration could be addressed over fewer or more phases than the example in our case study and/or a two-phase de-risk plan could be collapsed into a single de-risk phase if budget permits. As part of the engagement process, Eclipse provides a Statement of Work and an Eclipse Project Manager will provide a project plan that will detail the process steps, governance, tools, and timelines.
