Best Practice software permits the export of data in either XML or HTML format. If XML formatted data is chosen it can be directly imported into Best Practice. 

Export Data

With a patient's file click File | Export

 

Select XML format and choose at least the default of Allergies, Current Medications, Past History and Immunisations. The Goonellabah Medical Centre also recommends Family and Social History, Investigations, Correspondence In and EPC reports. 

Choosing the entire record is acceptable but may result in large amounts of data. 

Medical Director Export 

Medical Director can also export its data in XML format and this too can be imported by Best Practice. 

Uploading to the GMC 

See our File Uploads HowTo for sending your XML data to the Goonellabah Medical Centre.

 

Importing Patient XML Data 

Best Practice has a patient import/export facility. You will usually only need the Import Single Patient tool. 

Note: Make sure your patient is not already registered in the database as an inactive patient or with a variation in some of the demographic details.
