External Database

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:

A lot of these are old links, but the general principles are the same (and I don’t think there are many new modules).

Hi @ulrich I participated in GCI and created this video tutorial on the Data Import Tool. It might be of some help to you. Here’s the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jH_Q9vNK054

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 :smile:
