Greetings all, @darius, @dkayiwa, @burke, @wyclif, @pascal Please I have an OpenMRS installation here and will like to incorporate patients records that exist in another system(Oracle database). So I wish to know if Openmrs has a module that helps in using databases other that the default database. If yes I will like to have links to documentations that can help in this view else I will appreciate any other propositions or help on how I can do this.
It sounds like you are asking for “data import” or “data migration” and maybe you should search on the wiki for things like this.
I came up with the following with bit of googling:
- Ben talks about Data Migration: https://wiki.openmrs.org/x/9w0z
- Janet talks about Data Migration: https://wiki.openmrs.org/x/UwCeAQ
- Nyah has a tool (maybe Mozambique-specific?) https://wiki.openmrs.org/x/7A8zBQ
- Here’s an older spreadsheet import tool https://wiki.openmrs.org/x/igAUAg
A lot of these are old links, but the general principles are the same (and I don’t think there are many new modules).
Thanks for the documentations, will follow them and revert with the feedback
Kudo @grimm, will watch the video !! Be expecting my feedback
OK. Will be waiting
