Genial Genetics has had extensive experience with implementations with complex data transfer requirements. iGene has been designed to minimise the data transfer effort by including a data import module. This module allows users to import their own source data as CSV files and provide detailed feedback on orphaned records or data anomalies that can be rectified by editing CSV files directly in a spreadsheet application.
For users upgrading from the Genial Shire system, we have developed a Shire export application that outputs iGene ‘friendly’ CSV files ready for import. This facilitates the ability to do a large element of the data transfer easily on site with local testing at a much reduced cost. The exporter also supports custom record mapping to be configured to help re-map data into the iGene application.
