What is involved?

Converting your old patient database to MediRecords involves a high-level four-step process. Please contact our team to confirm the current wait-time. 

Step 1: Pre-requisites

The first step is to contact our Support team to schedule your data migration.

You can then liaise with your IT department to arrange for a backup of your entire database, or MediRecords can run this backup with approved access via remote connection.

Please ensure all patient records are set to active or inactive, as this will be transferred as closely as possible to MediRecords to match your current system. It’s important to note that the way documents are stored in MediRecords may differ from your current software.

Finally, complete and return our ‘MediRecords Data Migration Consent Form’.

Step 2: Trial conversion

At the approved conversion date/time we will remotely access your server or pre-arranged backup server files and convert your existing database to MediRecords.

This process can take 3-10 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the data file being migrated. Our team will confirm timeframes following the initial analysis.

You then need to conduct quality assurance, reviewing your converted data against a checklist we will supply for this purpose. This step is vital to ensure the quality of the migration.

Step 3: Pre-final conversion preparation

If you haven’t already, you need to create a MediRecords account for your practice and ensure that all clinical and support staff have been added as ‘users’ in your MediRecords practice. These accounts can be created by contacting our Support Team

Then arrange a mutually agreeable time with your team and MediRecords for the final data conversion.

Yes. Our team has implemented several processes to ensure that data migration is performed as securely as possible. After migration, your data is stored securely within our infrastructure, and we take extra precautions during the trial migration. This ensures that your data’s security is maintained throughout the entire process.

There should not be any downtime or disruptions to your practice during the migration. Our data migration process involves inserting ‘new’ data rather than updating existing data. This approach minimises the risk of disruptions and downtime, as it reduces the likelihood of impacting your current operational data. While we insert new data, it’s important to note that there may be instances of duplication in patient records. However, our migration process is designed to handle this scenario and ensure a smooth transition.

Support is available throughout and following the migration process. Our team is ready to assist with any queries, concerns, or issues you may encounter. During migration, we provide real-time support to ensure a smooth transition. After migration, ongoing support is available to address any post-migration needs, ensuring a seamless and well-supported experience for your team.
