When you run the Noah ES Migrator Tool under the default Simple tab, it will automatically create nhax files from your Noah System database, then upload and import the nhax files to Noah ES
Before beginning the migration to Noah ES, check your Noah System patient numbering setup in the Noah Console under Server Administration, Patient Numbering Tool. The default setting in Noah ES is automatic patient numbering. If you are using manual patient numbering in Noah System, change the patient numbering in Noah ES to Manual BEFORE migrating data to Noah ES. The setting for patient numbering is found in the Noah ES Portal under Settings, Patient Numbering.
When you migrate data to Noah ES using the Simple tab, the files are encrypted automatically and no password needs to be entered when creating the enhax files or when they are imported.

once logged in, click back on the Migrator Tool
The upload and migration will begin, progress will be shown under Status in the tool.
The Status will first report Validating as it reviews the data in the enhax
Next the tool reports Uploading – the enhax files are moved to the Noah cloud
Status is Uploaded – once all enhax files have been moved
Next the migration tool moves to Processing, depending on the size of the database and number of files this step may take some time:
When finished tool will report Completed
Once complete you will see message that you can now close the program.
Verify the data was moved successfully
In the Noah ES Data Migrator you can see when the migration is complete under Status and under Files.
The number of files uploaded and number of patient records migrated is displayed.
Review the Status to verify no files were Skipped or Failed.
If any records failed or files were skipped they have not successfully moved to Noah ES. Please review the Error Report for details.
First step to resolve this would be to re-migrate the database with the goal of 0 records Skipped, 0 records Failed.
Report any problems by selecting the ‘View error report’ and then saving and uploading to the Noah ES Support Portal.
Migrate additional patient records at a later date
If you have done the main migration from a Noah System database but add or update additional records to Noah System before you make the final move to Noah ES, you can use the Data Migrator to search for and migrate ‘Patient modified since’ to select recent records.
