MedInfoSys®: Data Migration

Most companies have already built-up a wealth of material that is necesssary or useful for handling medical enquiries:

  • Standard Letters
  • Supporting reference materials – articles, SmPCs, PILs, etc
  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) – typically shorter than Standard letters, and used when responding to telephone enquiries
  • Lists of products, and other categorising lists used to define and organise information

An important aspect of a MedInfoSys® project is therefore to assess the volume of data involved and then the population of this data into MedInfoSys®:

  • A data audit – seeing what data already exists, and in what formats, to assess the size of the task
  • Guiding and overseeing the standardisation of categorisation and formatting into a standard format
  • Designing a data migration strategy, from both a technical and process perspective (i.e. the sequence for migration of sources and record types, together with planning any cutover and testing phases)
  • Where an automated process is used, inserting customer-specific data mappings into NIP’s standard migration routines
  • Providing any necessary test scripts to enable users to test and ensure data integrity
