Data Migration tool will copy and securely transfer data to Noah ES
The data migration tool must run on a PC that will not need to use Noah System 4 with patients during the migration. However, it is possible for other PC workstations to use Noah System 4 and Noah ES while this process is running.
The Noah ES Data Migrator tool has two options, the default Simple mode which will automatically create patient migration files from the Noah System database, then upload and import the files to Noah ES, or the Advanced tab which allows for the manual upload of enhax to Noah ES
Migration will support moving data from the CE database, a SQL Server database, and from Noah compatible business systems that support the nhax format
Data migrated into Noah ES must come from Noah System 4.14 or higher
Any errors or problems, the migration tool will stop and report the specific error
If the Hearing Care Business is merging several offices/databases into one account, they will not be required to merge all data before moving the data into Noah ES, multiple databases can be migrated
After all nhax files have been migrated to Noah ES, the hearing care professional will run the Search for Duplicate Patients program from the Noah Console to combine any duplicate patient records. Details on using the Search for Duplicate Patients program can be found here: https://himsanoah.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/NESP/pages/3114795016
Q. How long will it take to migrate my Noah System database to Noah ES?
A. The timing of the data migration to Noah ES will depend on the size of the Noah database and the speed of the internet connection, but it is a methodical process. As a rough estimate you can expect one or two seconds per patient record but the size of each patient record is individual, so it is not an absolute measure.
In a Noah network environment it is possible to continue to work in Noah System or in Noah ES while the migration is taking place, you just cannot be on the machine where the Noah ES Data Migration tool is running. So for example, the migration tool can run on the Noah server while clients continue to work in Noah ES or Noah System.
